Can you help me reduce my taxes?

Can you help me with an IRS Tax Audit ?

Yes we can. If you received an audit letter from the IRS, our team is able to communicate with the IRS to ensure that you and your business are compliant and to help you negotiate the best possible result for your personal circumstances.

Will I just be another tax return?

Why pay for a premium service?

More time and care dedicated to your returns resulting in greater savings.  We offer better service levels and better execution than the majority of our competitors that operate on scale. We work with affluent families and are conversant with the issues and opportunities which come with affluence.

Why am I being audited by the IRS?

There could be many reasons. One of our clients thought her previous accountant wasn’t preparing her tax return correctly after she was audited by the IRS.  Matt at Advats reviewed the tax returns to discover that the entire business structure had been incorrect for several years.

Matt spent the time to go back and amend past tax returns, which saved the client roughly $10,000. This is because Advats took the time to review the tax return and ask the right questions the client’s unique circumstances.
