Business Tax Problem Resolution


Experienced, successful tax audit representation for business clients

Business tax audits before the Internal Revenue Service or state taxation boards can be a complex, time-consuming experience. Even if you have made every effort to properly comply with often highly complicated tax regulations, you can still receive an audit notice.  

The tax professionals at Ross-Stern & Associates are experts in resolving IRS and state tax board audits as well as tax debt resolution. Our team provides insight, guidance, and representation. We have represented numerous business clients before the IRS, the California Franchise Tax Board, the City of Los Angeles, nearby cities/counties, and other state tax boards, often resulting in “no change” audits.

If necessary, we can negotiate an Offer in Compromise or installment payment plan that minimizes the impact on your business finances. In many cases, we have successfully halted penalties, released liens, even reductions in the projected taxes due.

  • Filing back taxes owed
  • Negotiating the scope of an audit
