Meeting with an IRS auditor can feel eerily similar to being interrogated at a police station. Fortunately, you also have a set of rights that protect you from making your situation worse. These rights include:
Right to an Attorney
You have the right to have a tax attorney of your choice be present during the meeting. In fact, you can let your attorney do all the talking. This way, you do not have to deal with the scare tactics that an IRS auditor may try to use to pressure you to pay back taxes in full immediately.
