Understanding an IRS Tax Audit

An IRS audit is a review of an individual's or an organization's accounts and financial information to ensure that the information is being reported accurately, and to verify that the amount reported is accurate. Contrary to popular belief, being audited doesn't necessarily mean that the taxpayer made an error.

Returns are selected for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Random selection.
  • Document matching; for example, when a W-2 or 1099 don't match with the information reported.
  • Related examinations – a return may be selected for audit when it involves issues with other taxpayers whose returns are being audited.

Under the law, you are expected to retain any records used to prepare your return; the IRS recommends keeping those records for three years from the date the return was filed.

The length of an audit depends on a number of factors such as the complexity of the items being reviewed, the availability of information requested, and your agreement or disagreement with the findings. If you ultimately agree with the findings, you will be asked to sign a report, but if you disagree with the audit findings, an appeal request may be filed.
