Between the 2012 and 2015 tax years, TaxAct partnered with Tax Audit Defense to offer full-service audit representation in the unlikely event your tax return may be audited.
Tax Audit Defense covers you for as long as your return can be audited - state and amended returns included.
If you receive an audit notice from the IRS or state income tax agency, Tax Audit Defense will guide you through the audit process, no matter how long it takes. Tax Audit Defense handles all audit correspondence, so you won't have to communicate or meet directly with the IRS or state agency. Tax Audit Defense will also negotiate with agencies on your behalf to minimize any financial impact the audit may have. All of this protection is provided for as long as your return can be audited (generally three years for a federal return and four years for a state return).
For tax years 2012 through 2015, you had the opportunity to activate Tax Audit Defense when you filed your return. For assistance regarding your Tax Audit Defense membership, see TAD Customer Service, or call 1-800-410-2425. For assistance with your voucher number, call 319.373.3600 (option 1 for Consumer, then option 1 for Customer Service).
