Client Testimonials

I became totally and permanently disabled after a working for 44 years. I returned to college late in life (while working full-time) to fulfill my dream of becoming an RN and at that time found it necessary to secure student loans. Three years after being declared totally and permanently disabled my student loans were discharged. In January 2013 we received a 1099-C form declaring said student loans that were discharged however that amount could be considered as income for 2012. This was a large amount of money and we live on two pensions and social security income.

I started looking on the internet for information regarding 1099-C and felt that this was something that we could not handle alone. I made phone calls locally to a very reputable tax group in a city near us and they said it would cost $500 for an appointment and that they really prefer to do corporate taxes and they referred me to a local person who had worked for them at one time, we called and explained the situation and an appointment was made and then the comment was made that "I will have to do some research on this" and flags immediately went up and we called back and cancelled that appointment. I had been researching the IRSwebsite and every place else I could think of and I was not comfortable doing our own taxes this year. We called another local tax preparer that we had used in the past and made an appointment, however prior to the appointment, while still seeking information regarding our situation,

I came across a website for Gary l. Bode, MSA, CPA, PC in Wilmington, NC. I called Mr. Bodeand explained our situation and asked if he could help. He spoke very knowledgeably regarding the situation and stated that yes; he felt he could help us. As Mr. Bode was in North Carolina and we were in New York I scanned all of our documents including back-up documents for all of our claims and forwarded all to him. Mr. Bode kept in touch with us via email; we have spoken on the telephone several times and have become very comfortable with his knowledge and professionalism. Also, as I am a true "worrier" I have continued looking into information regarding our tax situation and I came upon another web page for Mr. Bode that included testimonials which spoke of his experience with this type of tax situation as it became prevalent during the recession. This reinforced in our minds that we had made the right decision in hiring this person as our tax preparer.

I share all of this as our taxes are now ready to be filed (we do owe tax for 2012 but not the astronomical figure we thought we were facing), and we are confident that they have been prepared with the utmost care by a gentleman who has an excellent working knowledge of the situation we faced and the tax laws that were applicable to said situation.

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.
