In the event of income tax audit, all states and the IRS can permit a taxpayer to be represented by a legal representative. The authorized person must be qualified to practice legal representation before the IRS or the state, and they must also have all the legal credentials. Hence, these representatives can be tax attorneys, CPAs, and Enrolled Agents.
In the audit proceedings, the authorized representative will defend the taxpayer through a developed strategy. They will also assist in the preparation of the documents which the taxing authority requires from the taxpayer. Likewise, the audit representative attends in all the meetings required of the taxpayer and takes charge of all the correspondence on behalf of the legal taxpayer.
