Client Testimonials

I used Gary’s services to file my 2012 income tax return. This was my first year having an accountant do my return, as I have always done it myself using TurboTax. However, this year I had cancelled debt from my old primary residence which I was forced to convert to a rental property after relocating out of state.

While it didn’t cost me anything to do the short sale, the income tax consequence from the cancelled debt, roughly $50,000 in my case, was enough to move me from the 15% tax bracket to the 25% tax bracket.  Needless to say, I was concerned about that.

Finances were already tight and my husband and I are expecting our first child this fall. So the possibility of owing income tax was stressing me out. However, Gary was great at relieving my fears.

He is extremely knowledgeable, answered all my questions and was very thorough. I knew I was in good hands. He kept in constant contact with me throughout the process, keeping me updated on the progress of my return and letting me know what paperwork he needed to complete my filing.

In my mind, best case scenario would have been to not owe any taxes. Second best would be to only owe a little. Well, you can imagine my surprise and delight when Gary told me I was actually due a refund of a little over $2,700.00!

To top it all off, I found Gary’s fee for service to be fair, competitive and affordable; especially given the complexity of this type of return. I am so glad I did not try and go it alone this year. I am extremely pleased with Gary’s service and would recommend him highly to anyone, in fact I already have. If you have cancelled debt from a short sale or foreclosure, don’t freak out. Take a deep breath and call or email Gary. I am grateful I did.

NC IRS audit CPA discusses IRS tax convictions

Gary Bode, CPA: if the IRS Criminal Investigation contacts you, call an attorney. But if you'd like a free initial phone consult on a tax audit issue, please call us at 399-2705.

The IRS itself is usually patient with taxpayers, often allowing months to resolve an issue.  Per their published chart below, the actual number of IRS criminal investigations is low.  And speaking as both a CPA and taxpayer, the folks they convict deserve it.  Here’s our post on convictions arising from IRS tax audits. And CI (Criminal Investigations) helps with the fight against terrorism, too, through their forensic accounting technologies.

While CPAs are the best professionals to handle IRS tax audits, you may need a good criminal attorney if IRS Special Agents, more commonly know as Criminal Investigator agents, contact you. The chart below shows that less than half of IRS criminal investigations end in convictions, but that over 80% of convictions result in prison sentences.  I imagine all convictions include fines and financial penalties.

How to Interpret Criminal Investigation Data

Since actions on a specific investigation may cross fiscal years, the data shown in cases initiated may not always represent the same universe of cases shown in other actions within the same fiscal year.

FY 2010 FY 2009 FY 2008
Investigations Initiated 4706 4121 3749
Prosecution Recommendations 3034 2570 2785
Information/Indictments 2645 2335 2547
Total Convictions 2184 2105 2144
Total Sentenced* 2172 2229 1957
Percent to Prison 81.5% 81.2% 80.9%

*Sentence includes confinement to federal prison, halfway house, home detention, or some combination thereof.

While I’m a Wilmington NC IRS audit CPA, our virtual office allows us to offer IRS resolution services to a wider geographical base. We have many posts discussing the IRS audit process, from the initial Notice, through the federal lien release.  This includes multiple articles delineating strategies on dealing with IRS audits.  Please read any of these to get a feel for our expertise and empathetic attitude.  Call (910) 399-2705 for a free initial phone consult.
