The Internal Revenue Service, the California Franchise Tax Board, and state Attorneys General retain the right to audit a charitable organization's activities to ensure compliance with federal and state tax-exemption requirements and state charitable trust laws. In many cases when such an audit arises, it is critical for the entity to obtain legal counsel to increase the likelihood of a positive outcome. Adler & Colvin attorneys offer an array of services to help clients through audits, including helping clients come into compliance with the applicable laws before an audit.
