Unfortunately, many individuals will face an audit at some point during their lives. While many believe that the risk of an audit may be very low, the volume of individuals contacting our firm for assistance with audits has grown significantly throughout the last few years which may reflect a growing trend of audits originating from the IRS and state taxing authorities.
Audits can target you individually or your business. Those currently at the highest risk of audit include those who report business activity on a Schedule C, small business owners, real estate professionals, and stock market traders.
Don’t think it could happen to you? Even if these categories do not describe you, you still could be selected by the IRS’ random computerized screening. Through no fault of their own, these individuals are selected based solely on the operation of a statistical formula.
Do not proceed with the IRS on your own. If an outcome needs to be changed after the original determination, the United States Tax Court may need to review the IRS’ handling of the audit which can add significant delay and cost to obtaining a fair resolution. It would be much more economical to allow a professional assist you in getting the right outcome the first time.
