i was audited on my schedule C and the deductions that were claimed for 2014 & 2015, the letter states if i don't respond to the letter , the IRS will issue an examination report showing additional taxes due. Does this mean they will just void my deductions on the Schedule C? the person that did my tax totally screwed me.

Hi, this is Rick. I'm a CPA based in NYC. There are a few things that could happen and they depend on the circumstances. I recommend we speak on the phone. Are you available later this afternoon?

Will it cost more?

Just Answer will charge a fee, not me. But I recommend it. I can answer all your questions and provide you with answers on how to proceed. If you do not wish to incur this charge, the answer to your question is no, they will not void your deductions. They will make selective adjustments to them. You should respond to the letter and let them know what you can and cannot bring.
