Navigating the Internal Revenue Service audit process is already a difficult task. Handling sensitive audits that are likely to uncover significant income underreporting and deficiencies add to these challenges.

Issues of privilege and the right to assert a taxpayer’s 5th Amendment rights will also be discussed.
