Tax Audit

What Is Tax Audit?

Tax audit is an examination of your tax return by the IRS or State Tax Department to verify that your income and deductions are accurate.

If the IRS is satisfied with your explanations and the documentation you provide, then it will not change anything on your tax return. If the IRS proposes changes to your tax return, you can either agree and accept the changes or challenge the agent's assessment. If you agree, you will sign an examination report or other form provided by the IRS and establish some type of payment arrangement. If you disagree with the findings, you can set up a conference with an IRS manager to further review your case. If taxpayer has fraud, it will come out penalties allowed by law.

Because catching one big fish is equivalent to catching dozens or hundreds of small fish or shrimp. This is called "Work Smart". The average probability of all taxpayers being audited in 2018 is less than 0.5%. The probability of those earning less than $200,000 per year is basically less than 0.5%. The probability of those earning more than $500,000 has been jumped to 1.10%, while the probability of those earning more than $1 million is 2.20%.

2. No Income

If you are filing your tax return with no income or only a small amount of income, the IRS will immediately target you, and you will have a 5% chance of being audited. Because it's hard to believe that you can't earn a penny a year in the United States. Even people who don't work have benefits, benefits, social Security income, interest, and so on. If you don't earn a dollar, the IRS will naturally ask, 'What do you do for a living?

3. Hiding Income

The IRS has a copy of the Form W-2, Form 1099, and so on that you receive every year. They will use the computer to compare them, and if they find that you've missed something, the IRS will send you a letter right away. If the circumstances are serious or the amount is large, you will be audited.

4. Self-Employed Or Freelancer

Self-employed or freelancer who usually receives form 1099 and reporting them on Schedule C. They have a lot of business-related expenses that are tax deductible, and the IRS will check your Schedule C with a magnifying glass.

5. People Who Have Large Cash Transactions

Restaurant owner, waiters, taxi drivers and others who have large cash transaction are also far more likely to be audited than employees with W-2 income. Because a lot of people do not file tax return with cash income. The IRS will also pay attention on people who have $20, 000 or $30, 000 income a year, but have expensive homes or fancy cars, so they are more likely to be audited.

6. Business Loss

Business has profit or loss every year, and there is no guarantee that you can always make money. If there is a loss, it will come to the attention of the IRS, and if there's something obviously suspicious, the IRS may initiate an audit process. Typically, new businesses require capital investment, and losses in the first few years are common, but if you report losses over many years, the IRS will review them.
