What is an IRS Tax Audit?

An IRS audit is a review of an individual's or an organization's accounts and financial information. This review is done to verify that the information is being reported accurately and you are paying your due taxes.

Under the law, you are expected to retain any records used to prepare your return. These records will be used if your are audited. The IRS recommends keeping your records for three years from the date the return was filed.

There are three main different types of tax audits:

  • Correspondence Audit - The most common type of audit, these take place through letters from and to the IRS
  • Office Audit - These audits occur at your local IRS office, where you must provide relevant documents and answer questions in-person
  • Field Audit - With these audits, an IRS agent visits your home or place of business, where they will review your records and documents

Contrary to popular belief, being audited doesn't necessarily mean that the taxpayer made an error. Returns are often selected randomly. Sometimes the IRS needs to match documents, such as when a W-2 or 1099 does not match with the information reported. Additionally, returns can be selected for audit if they involve issues with other audited taxpayers.

How Long Does a Tax Audit Take?

The IRS has up to 3 years to audit you. However, most tax audits are completed within a year.

The length of an audit depends on a number of factors, such as:

  • Complexity of the items being reviewed
  • Availability of information requested
  • Your agreement or disagreement with the findings

If you ultimately agree with the findings, you will be asked to sign a report. If you disagree with the audit findings, you may file a tax appeal request.

Should I Hire a Tax Attorney for an IRS Audit?

Sometimes, IRS audits can be resolved without an attorney. However, your audit may dredge up severe tax problems.

You may face tax penalties for underpaying or accuracy issues. Liens may be registered against your property, or it could be seized under a tax levy. Criminal charges resulting from IRS audits can be serious, resulting in high penalties and even jail time.

If you are being charged with tax evasion or fraud, or if there are any other complicating factors in your audit, a tax lawyer can work with you to protect your rights.
