Tax Audit – Examination/Audit of Tax Returns
What is an IRS audit?
An IRS audit is a review/examination of an organization’s or individual’s accounts and financial information to ensure information is being reported correctly, according to the tax laws, to verify the amount of tax reported is accurate.
Selecting a return for audit does not always suggest that an error has been made. Returns are selected using a variety of methods, including:
- Random selection and computer screening – sometimes returns are selected based solely on a statistical formula.
- Document matching – when payor records, such as Forms W-2 or Form 1099, do not match the information reported.
- Related examinations – returns can be selected for audit when they involve issues or transactions with other taxpayers, such as business partners or investors, whose returns were selected for audit.
During this process the IRS and/or state taxing agency wants to see proof of the type of income and expenses claimed (in the form of invoices, receipts, bank statements and etc) to determine the income and the expenses that were listed are valid.
If you are faced with IRS audit or state tax audit, it is in your interest to have a qualified tax professional to represent your interests. We represent individuals and individuals to minimize any potential tax increase.

An Audit Reconsideration is the process the IRS uses to reevaluate the results of a prior audit where additional tax were assessed and remains unpaid, or a tax credit was reversed. If the taxpayer disagrees with the original determination, he/she must provide information that were not previously considered during the original examination. When contesting a Substitute for Return (SFR) determination filed by the IRS, a taxpayer can request this process by filing an original delinquent return.
Reasons for a Request
- You did not appear for the audit.
- You moved and did not receive the correspondence from the IRS.
- You have new documentation to present.
- You disagree with an audit assessment from an audit of his/her return and have additional document.
- You disagree with an assessment created under the authority of IRC Section 6020(b), Substitute for Return (SFR).
- You have been denied tax credits such as EITC claimed, during prior examination.
Criteria for Reconsideration
- The taxpayer must have filed a tax return.
- The assessment remains unpaid or the Service has reversed tax credits that the taxpayer is disputing.
- The taxpayer must identify which adjustments he/she is disputing.
- The taxpayer must provide additional information not considered during the original examination.
- If any of these situations pertains to you, please contact us for a consultation.
Planning for your next year taxes starts now.
- Adjust your withholding. This is a good time to review your withholding to make sure that you have the appropriate amount of taxes withheld to prevent from owing taxes in the upcoming seasons. If you owed tax when you filed, you may need to increase the federal income tax withheld from your wages. Use the IRS Withholding Calculator at IRS.gov to complete a new Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate.
- Estimated Tax Payments should be made quarterly if you are self-employed. Please seek the guidance of your tax professional. Making EST can minimize or reduce any taxes that may be due when filing your returns.
- Store your return(s) and documentation in a safe place. If you need to refer to your return in the future, you will know where to find it. For example, you may need a copy of your return when applying for a home loan or financial aid. You can also use it as a helpful guide for next year’s return.
- Organize your records. Establish one location where everyone in your household can put tax-related records during the year. This will avoid a scramble for misplaced mileage logs or charity receipts come tax time.
- Consider itemizing deductions. If you usually claim a standard deduction, you may be able to reduce your taxes if you itemize deductions instead. If your itemized deductions typically fall just below your standard deduction, you can ‘bundle’ your deductions. For example, an early or extra mortgage payment or property tax payment, or a planned donation to charity could equal some tax savings. See the Schedule A, Itemized Deductions, instructions for the list of items you can deduct.
