Tax Audits Do Happen
As tax season is getting into full swing, most of us will be preparing to file our last year's taxes over the next few months. What we don't realize is that the IRS evaluates and audits returns all year long. A tax audit isconducted as an impartial review to determine the accuracy of your tax return.
As a taxpayer, you generally have to substantiate the entries on your return. For example, if you gave donations to a charity but do not have a receipt or proof of the donation, you could be in trouble during an IRS audit. If you disagree with the auditor, you can ask for an IRS appeal. If no agreement is reached with an appeals officer, your case may be taken over to the U.S. Tax Court, U.S. Claims Court or U.S. District Court.
