First of all, facing an IRS Tax Audit with no lawyer isn’t one thing I like to recommend you do. That said, I all the time get people who ask me what to do if they’re audited and haven’t any lawyer. So, avoiding the judgment that these people are about to have a idiot for a client, here are some suggestions that I can offer.
Don’t communicate till spoken to. Take this axiom for children to heart. Don’t answer an auditor’s question earlier than it is asked. Remark only upon the subject material that you are asked to comment on. Do not supply anything up.
Don’t convey any documents to the audit unless they are expressly requested within the audit notification. It doesn’t matter in the event you think the auditors will want it, or not. If they find out that they missed asking for a doc, they may be more likely to skip it.
