What is Audit Defense?

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.

Audit Defense is available through MAX Benefits (TurboTax Online) or as a standalone service (TurboTax desktop software). You'd need to buy it when you file your taxes.
