You can ask for an AUDIT RECONSIDERATION. See IRS Publication 3598 which can be downloaded at the IRS website. This is a brochure on the THE AUDIT RECONSIDERATION PROCESS. The brochure contains what an audit reconsideration is, reasons for the request, the steps to follow to get an audit reconsideration, payment options, FAQs, and where to send the audit reconsideration documents. Your request will be granted because you believe the IRS made a computational or processing error in assessing your tax. and you must state this reason in your request.Leave a Comment 298 weeks ago
