"Being selected for an audit is arguably one of the worst things that could happen to a small business owner, or at least that's how I felt.

It felt a lot less stressful when I hired Jess to communicate with the IRS on my behalf. Her extensive knowledge of tax law was evident when she would educate not just me but also the RA on the proper law.

She went the extra mile every day - with driving to me, essentially holding my hand through an interview, and making sure all responses to the RA were effective.

If you get audited - I strongly recommend having her by your side." - Parul G.
