Clergy Financial Resources now offers 2012 Audit Protection Plus at a low rate of $95.00 per year, regular $149.00. This insurance protects you from the large costs of tax return corrections, required correspondence, and tax examinations by mail, and direct audits.
Tax audits and correspondence with the tax authorities has become an expensive inconvenience. Each year the IRS or your state selects certain tax returns to examine. If your 2012 return is selected, you may incur considerable expense even if the audit reveals that it is necessary to change your return. Most taxpayers faced with an IRS or state audit choose to have representation in their dealings with the IRS or state during the audit. This representation can cost you $1,000 or more.
If the IRS or state contacts you in reference to any type of correction or required correspondence, tax examinations by mail or direct audits, we will contact and negotiate with the tax authorities at no additional cost. This annual fee will cover any and all costs associated with your 2012 return, prior to the appeals level, including any and all correspondence. This service does not include the cost of a clergy tax professional to attend the audit. You will not be able to purchase the 2011 Audit Protection Plus after December 31, 2013.
Without Audit Protection Plus, all audit or correspondence services will be billed at $185.00 per hour.
With Audit Protection Plus, if a tax return we prepared is audited by the IRS or your state and you pay additional tax as a result of our error, we will credit your account for any penalties you pay in connection with, or as a result, of the additional tax.
If you are audited or receive a notice from the IRS or your state, it is important to contact your clergy tax professional to prepare for the audit. Clergy Financial Resources will complete such pre-audit tasks such as:
• Reading and understanding the IRS letter
• Researching the applicable IRS audit guidelines
• Gathering and organizing receipts or other documentation
• Reviewing prior returns that could affect the audit
• Contact and negotiate with the tax authorities
Leave the explanations to the clergy pros!!
You will not be able to purchase 2012 Audit Protection Plus after 12/31/2013.
