Examples of standard documentation the IRS requires during audits to better understand your specific tax deductions include the following:

  • Receipts
  • Automobile receipts
  • Mileage logs
  • Canceled Checks
  • Bank statements
  • Settlement statements
  • Odometer readings

Though your tax specialist might not have asked to see every one of these documents, they will be necessary to develop the proper response to the audit. However, if you cannot find every single receipt or other documentation, we understand. We will still prepare you for the audit and represent you even if you don’t have every requested document. What matters most in the context of an audit is communication. Be proactive by telling our audit specialists about the records you cannot locate, and we will do everything in our power to develop a cohesive audit response that safeguards your hard-earned money.
