Think you can deal with the IRS yourself? Think again! I am often asked by perspective clients if they can handle an IRS problem on their own. As an Equine Accountant I tell my clients the following.
I own horses, but I pay someone to train them and drive them in races. I own a car, but I pay a dealer to service the vehicle at the scheduled intervals and I rarely have a breakdown. Do you do major repairs to your appliances without training?
The IRS has the power to take any or all of your assets without a whole lot of explanation and often violating their own procedures. You need an expert to look at your IRS transcripts and determine what rights you have and if things have been done correctly. We even find quite a few clients have been victims of unlicensed accountant.
