Know What The IRS Is Looking To Attack By The Type Of Audit Being Conducted

The IRS randomly selects tax returns for audit each year. Depending on what deductions you’ve taken and other characteristics of your tax return, your tax return can have a higher probability of being selected for an audit.

Here’s what you need to know about IRS tax audits. There are three types of audits:

Correspondence Audit: This is the least severe type of audit. It involves the IRS sending a letter in the mail requesting more information about part of a tax return. For instance, the IRS may have questions regarding charitable deductions and request you send in receipts to substantiate your deduction. If you have the receipts or information it’s generally not an issue. If your tax return is legitimate and you have the data to back up any claims on your return, you may be able to handle the situation on your own. But if you don’t have the receipts or information, then you should hire a tax representation professional dealing with the IRS because you could face fines, penalties and interest if you end up owing money.

Office Audit: If the IRS has more questions about your return, then you’ll get a letter in the mail inviting you into an IRS office for the audit. The office audit is more serious, so you should always have a tax representation professional come with you or turn over the audit representation to him. A tax representation professional can gather information in advance of the meeting and make sure it is complete so that the office audit can be wrapped up with the IRS as quickly as possible. If the IRS still needs additional records, your representative can secure additional time to supply the missing information.

Field Audit: This is the most serious type of audit and involves the IRS agent visiting you at your home or your business. The reason the field audit is more serious is the IRS agentwill ask to see other things. The agent does not want to limit the audit to particular items.While there are much fewer field audits than office or correspondence audits, I wouldn’t let any client go into a field audit without representation. It’s the most serious level of audit. If they are coming out to you, they are looking for something.

If any part of your return worries you and the IRS is breathing down your neck, you should bring in a tax representation professional to help curb any worries or fines. Taxpayers have a tendency because they have no experience dealing with the IRS to say way too much, give away too much and admit too much. You don’t want to give the agent information the agent has not asked for.

Using a tax law firm to help with an audit can significantly increase your chances of getting a better outcome. Many times individuals don’t realize that audits can go both ways, you may actually end up being owed money after an audit. A tax law firm can analyze your situation and find the best approach to take in order to get the best outcome. The IRS actually prefers working with professional tax representatives because it makes their job easier and helps the process move along more efficiently, which can actually result in a more favorable decision.
