Those facing tax audits may want an attorney in their corner

Those who seek professional help during tax season may believe that their tax preparer is the only person they will need to turn to in the event of an audit. While it is the tax preparer's job to defend whatever he or she did, resulting in the audit, there may be reason to seek the assistance of an experienced tax attorney. Here are a couple reasons why Connecticut residents -- particularly those who are dealing with business tax issues -- who are facing tax audits may want to think about seeking help from legal counsel.

Connecticut residents facing tax audits can seek help

Every year, you've completed your taxes to your best ability. You've either taken on the role of tax preparer yourself or you turned to a trusted individual to get everything filed for you. Your returns were accepted with no problem, and you paid or received a refund as expected. Then it happens -- you receive notice that you are being audited for a tax return submitted two years ago. You and other Connecticut residents like you who are facing tax audits can seek help to get through it unscathed.

Estate taxes and the law change

Connecticut residents may be left wondering what the new tax law will mean for them. In truth, it may help some but not others. It may be a good thing, or it may be a burden. Everyone's individual situation is different. One area that may be helped by it, though, is estate taxes.

Because you are on your own, you may worry about how possible mistakes could impact your business and personal state of affairs.

Many Connecticut residents turn to tax preparers to help them with their tax filings. As complicated as the tax code is, this can be a smart move. However, what if you, as a professional tax preparer, make mistakes? You could be on the hook for the results of your clients' tax audits.

Can nonprofit organizations avoid tax audits?

There are a number of nonprofit organizations that operate in Connecticut. In order to achieve nonprofit status, they had to set up their organizations properly and apply for the proper tax status.
