Audit Defenses for Individuals
If your personal tax return has drawn scrutiny from the IRS, we understand how this situation may feel unnerving. It’s completely normal to feel anxious, insulted, and even frightened when you receive an audit notice from the IRS – even if you know you didn’t do anything wrong. Just know that when you need help, The Blue Law Group is here for you.
We can aggressively defend you when the IRS sends you notice that it intends to investigate your life and finances. They’re not looking to extend your rebate – they’re looking to hold you accountable for unpaid taxes. That’s why we’ll fiercely hold them accountable for interfering with your life by building a comprehensive audit defense for your personal tax matters.
As a CPA, attorney Blue has a unique understanding of what the IRS is looking for, how it will search for the information it needs, and what clients can do to protect their privacy and liability from the government’s prying eyes.
Common audit triggers on a personal tax return can include the following:
- Lifestyle inconsistent with one’s income level
- A very high income
- Large or frequent cash deposits
- Mathematical errors on your return
- Spelling mistakes on your tax documents
Helping Businesses Prepare for IRS Audits
Reach out to our audit defense attorney in Westwood/Los Angeles if the IRS is threatening to take a closer look at your business.
We can help your company prepare for an IRS or state tax authority audit when either government agency decides to take a closer look at your books.

Common triggers for business tax audits can include the following:
- Consecutive losses across multiple years
