We were forced to move for work and couldn't sell the house. As such, we rented it for 9 months in order to avoid forclosure. Taxes were prepared by HRB and they've been working with IRS. They have not yet "appealed", but I would like to know if its time to cut them loose and hire a tax attorney. Thanks in advance.Per the first reply (thanks!), I thought it prudent to indicate that the HRB reprentative is an EA. His services came as a result of HRB's Audit Defense protection.
