There is a referral process currently in place among IRS auditors
and revenue agents. It’s the process whereby IRS collection activity quietly turns into criminal investigation – and how audits turn into arrest warrants. A client of Roni Lynn Deutch describes it like this:

  For awhile, the IRS called me just about every day. They’d come
  by my beauty salon, about once or twice a month, always 
  wanting to talk to me about this-or-that. Then everything just 
  stopped. Roni told me it was a lot like an ex-boyfriend.  After 
  they find out you’re not interested, they just kind of go away.

Actually, it’s not like an ex-boyfriend at all. Rather, it’s more like
your Miranda rights attached.

​When one of our clients at Hellesmeer faces an audit, an attorney working in Tax-AID immediately adopts a proactive approach to the problem – as opposed to wait-and-see. Attacking the problem in the audit stage is similar to attacking cancer.

In short, an audit or IRS Administrative Summons must be resolved immediately with the tax examiner, auditor, or revenue agent assigned to the case. And any investigation which has moved beyond the audit stage, through the process of criminal referral, must be quashed by the special agent-in-charge and sent back. 

Based on knowledge of dealing with revenue agents, as well as 
the background with special agents in the IRS Criminal Investigation Division (IRS-CI), Tax-AID follows a general rule:

In dealing with a Federal agency with a 95% conviction rate,  Hellesmeer offers 100% transparency and full disclosure.

We do this with authenticated Financial Affidavits backed up by a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). And we double-check these, too, with an independent fraud examination by a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) before anything ever ends up on an agent’s desk.

Tax-AID is concluded by a comprehensive meeting. It includes our Tax-AID client as well as an attorney working in either our Credit Defense (CDP) or Bankruptcy Defense Program (BDP).  Our goal is to make sure that our client’s vulnerability to avoidable tax consequences never happens again.  Because every U.S. citizen has an obligation to pay their taxes but no one is obligated to overpay.
And, while tax evasion is a Federal crime, tax avoidance is not.
