An IRS audit is a review/examination of an agency or person’s accounts and financial records to ensure that information is correctly recorded in compliance with tax laws and check that the amount of tax reported is accurate.

Why am I being chosen for my audit?

Choosing an audit does not necessarily mean that there is a problem. The IRS uses several different approaches:

  • Computer screening and random selection: often, the returns are chosen based solely on a mathematical formula. For identical returns, we compare the tax return to “norms.” As part of the IRS’ National Research Program, these “norms” are generated from audits of a statistically valid random sample of returns. To update return selection information, the IRS uses this software.
  • Related exams: When they include problems or transactions with other taxpayers, such as business partners or investors, whose returns have been selected for audit, we will pick the returns.

Next, the return is checked by an experienced auditor. They can approve it, or if the auditor notes anything suspicious, they may classify the items mentioned and forward the return to an investigating party for assignment.

How am I informed?

We will inform you by mail if your account is selected for audit. We will not initiate a telephone audit.

How will the IRS do my audit?

To check the documents, the IRS manages audits either by mail or via an in-person interview. The interview may occur at the IRS (Office Audit) office or the taxpayer’s home, business location, or accountant’s office (field audit). Remember, you’ll be contacted via mail initially. In the letter that you will get, the IRS will have all the contact details and instructions.

If we perform your audit by mail, our letter will request additional information, such as revenue, expenditures, and itemized deductions, for those items shown on the tax return. You can order a face-to-face audit if you have too many books or documents to submit by mail. In the letter you get, the IRS will have contact details and instructions.

IRS examiners can use one of these Audit Techniques Guides to support them, depending on your audit issues. You will be given an idea of what to expect by these guides.

What am I meant to provide?

For the particular documents we want to see, the IRS will provide you with a written order. Here’s a list of documents that the IRS may be seeking.

The IRS approves some electronic records created by tax software. Instead of or in addition to other types of documents, the IRS can request those. To decide what we are prepared to consider, contact your auditor.

For at least three years from the day the tax return was filed, the statute allows you to keep all the documents you used to prepare your tax return.

How do I know if the IRS received my answer?

Often request confirmation that the IRS has received it for any delivery service you will use. For instance, if you use the US Postal Service, you can order one of their additional services to ensure assurance of delivery.
