I noticed TurboTax (which I haven't used in a few years) now has something you can pay a small fee for, called Audit Defense. Anyone have any experience with this? It is supposed to be a complete package in case you get audited; they represent you, do all the paperwork, and talk to the IRS for you I think. I was wondering if I sign up for it, am I giving any rights away, etc. Don't expect an audit, but one of the selling points seems to be paying a small amount now, sort of as insurance I guess, versus what could be thousands of dollars in representation fees. Sounds pretty good, but it's all sort of new to me.
