Our assembled team of professionals help your business reconcile the “burden of proof” 

Burden of Proof 

is on 

Your Business.

Sourced from

“The responsibility to prove entries, deductions, and statements made on your tax returns is known as the burden of proof. You must be able to prove (substantiate) certain elements of expenses to deduct them. Generally, taxpayers meet their burden of proof by having the information and receipts (where needed) for the expenses. You should keep adequate records to prove your expenses or have sufficient evidence that will support your own statement. You generally must have documentary evidence, such as receipts, canceled checks, or bills, to support your expenses. Additional evidence is required for travel, entertainment, gifts, and auto expenses.”

Frequently Asked Questions that our Members ask:

How much does the membership cost?

Silverback Tax Audit Defense provides three tiers of membership based on the state of your paperwork and record keeping. The most expensive tier would provide the most help in assisting compiling your documents and paperwork to properly prepare an audit defense. The lowest price tier is appropriate for those businesses that have all of their documentation and record keeping significantly up to date (within four weeks). Membership plans begin at $59.95 per month.

When do we send in our documents, records, etc?

Documents will be collected in the event of an Audit Inquiry.

Does membership include State & Local Tax audits?

No, this membership defense plan only covers Federal IRS audits for small businesses at this time. The IRS is significantly increasing its number of agents and will put greater focus on small business owners and high net worth individuals. Membership in Silverback Tax Audit Defense makes sense now more than ever.

Is membership available for Individual 1040 Taxpayers?

At this time, membership is only available for small businesses and consultants as well as their owners & officers. If your business is run through a Schedule C or E then your 1040 tax return is covered under this membership. Membership for Individual 1040 Tax Returns without a business is something we may offer in the future.

My CPA does my tax returns. Doesn’t that protect me from an audit?

Having a CPA does not prevent you from getting audited. Although it does help keep your paperwork compliant and in good order, a tax audit defense requires detailed investigation and a well supported response. Enrolling in Silverback Tax Audit Defense would allow you to benefit from our team of Tax Defenders’ experience, knowledge and professionalism.

We have received an IRS Inquiry Notice. We are not members, but are you able to help?

Audit defense via Silverback Tax Audit Defense is only effective from the date you become a certified member and payments are up to date.  Any pre-existing audit inquiry could be managed on an hourly basis and would be handled on a case by case basis.  Call 1-866-511-6030 for more information.
