IRS Audit Defense

Approximately 25% of Americans fear being audited by the IRS. Yet, less than 1% of returns are flagged by the IRS each year for further scrutiny. The main reason why so few taxpayers are the subject of an IRS audit is that the IRS has limited resources. That being said, if you are one of the unlucky few selected for an audit, the IRS audit process can be a frightening one.

1. The IRS Audit Process

It is worth noting that not all IRS audits are created equal. There are several different types of audits. Some of the different types of audits include:

• Correspondence Audits
• Office Audits
• Field Audits
• Line-by-Line Audits

Correspondence Audits

A correspondence audit is handled through the mail. Typically, the IRS will send you a letter stating that you owe money. Correspondence audits are often the result of a math error on your tax return. While the easiest solution is to pay the additional tax, it is not always practicable or the best option (i.e., perhaps the IRS is wrong). In such cases, an experienced tax professional can be a major asset in negotiating with the IRS.

Office Audits

An office audit occurs when the IRS wants you to come into the office in person to ask you specific questions about your return. You will generally receive a letter advising you to report to the office on a given date. Failing to report can result in an escalation of the matter.

Field Audits

Field audits occur where an IRS agent visits your home or business to ask you more specific questions. These types of IRS audits can be far more damaging as they are generally not limited to specific items like correspondence and office audits.

Line-by-Line Audits

Simply put, line-by-line are the worst IRS audits. Even worse, these audits are generally random – taxpayers are selected through no fault of their own. The good news is they are exceedingly rare.

Tax Audit Defense

If you have been selected for an IRS audit it is highly advisable to retain the services of an experienced tax professional. Tax audits are a serious matter – they can result in significant penalties and/or criminal charges. It is important to keep in mind that the IRS makes mistakes too. Never assume that the IRS is correct. Moreover, use the IRS’s lack of resources to your advantage. Never agree to extend any IRS deadline or the statute of limitations. The IRS has three years to audit you, if they fail to get it done prior to then they forfeit the right – do not waive this important protection.
