Can anybody tell me if they have ever reported an IRS examination? I have been asked to do one in a couple of weeks, and I don't believe I have ever reported one of these. I have been told that there can be any number of examiners, and I am under the impression it is an examination of a person being audited. If anyone can tell me more about these proceedings, I would really appreciate it.

This one is actually at the IRS office in Chico, if that means anything.
Thanks again for your help.

Good luck, Lorna, let me know how it goes. Just for your info, the ones I went to were in Federal Buildings.

Whew! Thanks for the info. I have been battling tennis elbow since last May and have only done, pretty much, Workers' Comp depos (a few family law things in court that just about killed me). So I am not in any shape to do something all day (they said 9:00 to 4:00) that's going to be slammin' fast. To elaborate a little bit more, they told me, "X" amount per page if there are 2 examiners or less, and "Y" amount per page if there are 3 or more. I am just hoping that it's conducted in an orderly manner so that they aren't just all interjecting questions all over the place. I guess we shall see.

No. It's probably not what I went to because now that it's coming back to me a little bit more, I actually don't remember the person getting asked questions. It was more of a union representative speaking for them and somebody from the IRS making a statement.

Thanks, Lynnette. I do know one thing I was told was that the page rate would be higher depending upon the number of "examiners." Does that make any sense to you?

I don't know but this may be an exam of a person who works for the IRS. I have done a couple of those. There are a few people present. It's been a while since I've done one so I'm trying to remember who was there. One of the ones I did was where they read off some document or something for a long time at a very rapid speed. Sometimes they have these things prepared in advance or maybe most of the time. So I don't know if this could turn out to be one of these things. So just wanted to warn you in advance.

Hmmm...wouldn't that be interesting. All I know is, it's in Chico, near me. Thanks so much for the info, Elena. I was afraid I might be getting into one of those horrid jobs I had never heard of before, you know, like public hearings.

Are any of our illustrious Senators going to be there??

Lorna, I did one several months ago. The main feature of mine was that the person doing the questioning was not an attorney; rather, it's an IRS collection agent. The witness had an attorney present and an IRS attorney was also there, but the main questioner was as described above. Please let me know if you have any other questions. It was fairly easy and straightforward.
