I did some work for a cpa office......now do a few hours work for her every year and she does my taxes for me. I even get a few bucks on top of the deal. A win win situation.

Now thats reasonable to me 75 a month for everything. Do you have employees? even if not that is still good.

Some tip I read somewhere once said, if you do get the dreaded "face-to-face" audit, schedule your meeting as late in the day on a Friday as possible, the theory being that the IRS guy wants to get done and enjoy his weekend just like anyone else. Hopefully they wouldn't dig as deep as they would for a 9am Monday appointment.

Just tell them you can ONLY meet at 4pm on Fridays...

I don't remember much from the article, other than that tidbit and that it was written by a former IRS agent. Point was, don't evade the IRS, but you can do things like that to tip the scales in your favor.

Oh yeah, also, don't ever volunteer any info. Too many folks get nervous, try to be accomodating and cough up info when they should have kept their mouths shut.
