According to partnership audit rules put in place by the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS), all partnerships must appoint a Partnership Representative. Their role is to respond to any audit requests should they arise. The Partnership Representative then works with the IRS to coordinate matters on behalf of the partnership.
This includes satisfying audit requirements by coordinating the information requested, as well as handling extensions of the statute of limitations and settling matters on behalf of the partnership. This will require working with and coordinating all third parties (partners and others) on behalf of the partnership.
As your Partnership Representative, we can ensure you stay up-to-date on partnership audit risks, and that you'll have a partner ready to assist with any specific IRS examinations, including a team of top-notch tax specialists with experience working with the IRS who can limit tax risks and resolve audit issues.
