Visit the TurboTax Audit Support Center any time you need audit-related help.
Our TurboTax Audit Support Guarantee gives you free audit guidance from a trained tax professional to help you understand your IRS notice and answer all your audit-related questions.
This Guarantee covers all 2014, 2015, and 2016 federal and state returns prepared in TurboTax Basic, Deluxe, Premier, Home & Business, Self-Employed, Free Edition, and Freedom Edition.
- One-on-one audit guidance from an experienced tax professional;
- Year-round answers to your audit questions; and
- Assistance with what to expect and how to prepare for the audit.
Audit Defense is available through MAX Assist & Defend (TurboTax Online) or as a standalone service (TurboTax desktop software). You'd need to buy it when you file your taxes.
If you were to get audited by the state or IRS, Audit Defense is an optional add-on service that would give you full audit representation from a licensed tax professional.
We've teamed up with TaxAudit.com to offer this service so you can be confident that everything will be handled on your behalf in the unlikely event of an audit.
From the first notice, to completion of the audit, they'll handle everything for as long as your return can be audited, including:
- Developing a plan of action
- Following up with the IRS
- Preparing IRS documents for you
- Representing you in all IRS meetings
