Taxpayers can get flagged for forgetting important forms, mixing up numbers, or exaggerating tax breaks. Even one mistake can alert the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to take a closer look at your return. While there is no such thing as “audit proofing” a tax return, there are some precautions to take to reduce the chances of an audit.
Remember, an audit is just the IRS asking for an explanation of the information you’ve provided on your return. If you receive an audit request letter and have questions, contact us. We’re always here to help!
