Encino, CA (PressExposure) December 30, 2009 -- In fiscal-year 2009, the IRS collected $48.9 billion through collection, examination and document-matching efforts. Nearly 1.4 million Americans were audited, which equates to just over 1% of all tax returns filed.
âThe audit rate today is 100% higher than in 2000,â said Michael Rozbruch, founder and CEO of Tax Resolution Services, Co., the only national certified tax resolution firm in the country. âJust because a taxing authority has decided to audit you, does not mean you have to roll over and die or be pushed around by the IRS. Every taxpayer has the fundamental rights of due process, fairness and representation- even if the auditor does not explain this to you.â
According to Rozbruch, an incorrect assessment by an IRS auditor can end up costing you thousands of dollars, and taxpayers who seek professional tax attorney and tax resolution services have a better chance of successfully negotiating a tax settlement than those who try to deal with an IRS audit on their own.

âIf you fail to respond to a letter from the IRS, they will garnish your wages, they will put a lien on you, and one day you will go to Starbucks and youâll give them your credit card and they will tell you that thereâs no money in your account. And youâll find out whyâthe IRS took it,â Gary said. âEvery day people get letters from the IRS, demanding money. The first thing I would do if I got a letter from the IRS is to call TRS to solve your problem.â
