Did you know that if you are audited by the IRS, the burden of proof for under reporting your income is on the IRS?  

However, the burden of proof that you have deducted legally allowable expenses and deductions is on the taxpayer (you).

  • Please contact me to set up an appointment so that we may discuss your understanding of legally allowable expenses and deductions.
  • Remember ordinary and reasonable for your industry are the operative words when determining if an expense is an allowable business expense for your type of business.
