IRS Tax Audits
IRS audits are conducted to ensure the appropriate amount of revenue is received by the government and to increase tax compliance. To do this, they calculate taxpayer’s deductions in accordance with their income levels. If your deductions vary greatly from the IRS’ computations, the chance of them citing an error on your return is likely. However, in many cases, tax laws are subjective, meaning they are open to interpretation.
