Travis Greaves was quoted by Highya in an article discussing how the IRS selects taxpayers for audit and how such taxpayers should respond to an audit.
Travis explained that the first rule of audits is to stay calm.
“Don’t panic,” he said. “The IRS may simply want you to substantiate a deduction or provide further proof of income.”
He also explained the need for taxpayers to seek counsel at the beginning of an audit.
“It’s advisable to contact a tax attorney or an accountant with experience in audits to review your matter and determine the scope of the audit,” Travis said.
