Filed on software on phone it told me he was head of household (not single) , claimed niece nephew, permission granted by sister, with whom he lived. first owed $2000ish now over$7000,threatening to take his possessions
A: If you disagree with the results of the audit you may be able to file an audit reconsideration.
A: Some things are fixable, some things are not. It depends entirely on what was claimed and whether the taxpayer was entitled to claim it or not. Since the dollar values are high enough, it would be in his best interest to do a consultation with a professional and go over the whole situation.
A: He might be able to request an audit reconsideration. I recommend that he talk to a tax attorney. Most of us offer a free consultation and will be able to tell him if he might get a better result by requesting an audit reconsideration.
