INCOME TAX PLANNING AND IRS AUDIT SITUATIONS
INCOME TAX PLANNING
Income tax planning is one of the most important services we provide. In business, most major decisions have tax implications. We make it a priority to work collaboratively and proactively with our clients to consider the tax impacts of their decisions. We ask some key questions, did you like the outcome of your last year’s return? Did you get a large refund? Did you owe a lot in taxes? What is your perfect tax scenario? We work with you to get you into a more neutral tax situation while educating clients on current tax laws, IRS hot buttons, and other items. We ideally like to do this once a year.
IRS AUDIT SITUATIONS
We provide our clients confidence that if they receive any correspondence from the IRS or a State tax agency we will explain the notice, calm fears and find the quickest resolution possible without them ever needing to deal directly with a tax agency. Our priority is to resolve problems before they become larger issues, even if we did not prepare the return in question. We start by helping to gather information responsive to the inquiry, and this is typically where it ends. If an inquiry progresses, we help dispute or obtain an abatement of penalties if appropriate. For those with delinquent returns, we focus on getting returns filed and calculating back taxes. If necessary, we help our clients enter into installment agreements to pay back the IRS.
Attestation Engagements - What in the world do these mean? In non-accounting speak, it means an engagement where we do a formal report for the end user. There are three types of engagements and they are ranked from low to high.
Highest Level of Assurance
An audit is a methodical review and objective examination of the financial statements, including the verification of specific information as determined by the auditor or as established by general practice.
Our work includes a review of internal controls, testing of selected transactions, and communication with third parties. Based on our findings, we issue a report on whether the financial statements are fairly stated and free of material misstatements.
Less extensive than an audit, but more involved than a compilation, a review engagement consists primarily of analytical procedures we apply to the financial statements, and various inquiries we make of your company's management team. If the financial statements or supporting information appear inconsistent or otherwise questionable, we may need to perform additional procedures.
Why might a business request a review engagement? It can be a good middle ground, providing the advantages of a CPA's technical expertise without the work and expense of an audit.
Lowest Level of Assurance
In compiling financial statements for a client, we present information that is the "representation of management" and expresses no opinion or assurance on the statements. Compilations don't require inquiries of management or analytical procedures. Instead, we rely on our knowledge of accounting principles and a general understanding of your business.
Banks often require compilations from an independent CPA as part of their lending covenants.
