A self-employed man who traveled extensively in his consulting business was audited by the IRS. Most of his business expenses were scrutinized and the result was that many of his travel expenses were disallowed by the IRS on the basis that these were considered personal in nature. The man tried to explain to the IRS that the travel expenses were legitimate business expenses; however, his claims were rejected.

He was referred to Patrick Cooper and Associates, P.C. Patrick began work immediately on the case by obtaining copies of expense receipts and scheduled a meeting with both the auditor and an audit supervisor. After meeting with the IRS auditors, Patrick was able to prove that the travel expenses were indeed valid business expenses and the deductions were thus allowed. The result was a larger tax refund and peace of mind as a result of our representation.
