What initiates a tax audit?
Regardless of how carefully you complete your taxes, the Internal Revenue Service may still choose to audit your tax return. An audit is simply a way for the IRS to double-check your return to ensure that you did not make any mistakes. Sometimes, tax audits are random. Other selections are made based on suspicious activity.
The IRS has many things in its arsenal to go after you. From the very first letter from the IRS, it takes a psychological toll on people and makes them feel like they are constantly being watched. It is important not to give in to this intimidation because there are ways of fighting back!
The IRS needs information from you, but that doesn’t mean they should get everything they want. You have the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney. Do not give in to intimidation tactics!

Why the IRS may contact you?
A financial audit doesn’t imply that there is criminal involvement. Tax returns contain complicated financial information on tax returns which requires verification of their accuracy. The auditing process will involve examining and reviewing your documents for intentional and unintentional mistakes. Taxpayers are chosen by the IRS by random selection or computer screening-based triggers using statistical calculations. If you do not adhere to these standards you may have a chance to get audited.
Common myths about audits
Audits are scary! But these are not as dramatic as what’s shown on TV. The process has become clinically more complex. Many people think tax audits only target the rich and only deductions are subject to audits. This is not always the case. The IRS also looks for people who over-report their income or omit to report some of it.
The IRS acts much like the TSA at airports. The return is randomly chosen and then others are selected to see what appears unusual.
What to do if you receive a letter from the IRS?
If you are contacted by an IRS agent:
The first step is to determine why you are being selected for an audit. The agent will send you a notice that will list the items being questioned. You will have a short time to respond to the notice. You should gather all of the documentation that supports your position and contact a tax attorney. We will examine your case and, if you each agree, represent you throughout the audit process.
The next step is to understand what types of records and documentation the IRS will request. You then need to organize these records and review your reported income. To allow our attorney to respond to the audit. This will be much more difficult for small business owners to do themselves. The Internal Revenue Service will want to review both personal and business expenses. The tax preparation process for a small business owner is much more complex and you should not try to file an income tax return yourself.
