If we DID prepare the tax return being audited, we will provide you with a 1-hour audit consultation at no charge. There-after, we will charge $80/hour for audit representation and support.
If we did NOT prepare the tax return being audited, we will meet with you at our offices to review your audit letter and provide initial recommendations on what you need to do to prepare for the audit.
- Our fee for a 60-minute Initial Audit Meeting is $200. (This fee does not apply if Pacific Northwest Tax Service prepared the return under audit)
