Do I need to be incorporated in order to work with you?

We work with individuals, corporations and partnerships.  That being said, if you are self employed (do not receive a w-2), we strongly recommend you form an entity instead of operating as a sole proprietor.  There are certain exceptions to this, mainly if you are earning less than $20,000 per year.  Click here to learn why we recommend why you should incorporate, form and LLC or PA.

 

What happens if I get audited?

In the unlikely event of an audit, you can rely on us to represent you.  An IRS audit can be a very stressful experience.  However, we have a lot of experience representing people in front of the IRS.  In fact as a CTRS (Certified Tax Resolution Specialists) many other accountants, CPA’s and Enrolled Agents ask me to represent their clients during an audit.  That being said, the best way to handle an audit s to just avoid it completely.  There are many ways to avoid an audit,  these include, filing timely, keeping good records and for those that are self employed, make certain you have the correct structure.  A sole proprietor (non incorproated business is 6 times more likely to get audited than a company structured as an S-Corporation.  You don’t have to take my word for it, click here to see the audit statistics.
