What triggers an IRS audit for my small business?

Many factors can trigger an audit, including: high income reported, inconsistencies in reporting compared to industry averages, unclaimed deductions, and past due tax returns. However, even with a clean record, random audits still occur.

What should I do if I receive an IRS audit notice?

Don’t panic! Stay calm and contact an experienced tax attorney immediately. They can explain the audit process, gather necessary documents, represent you during the audit, and ensure your rights are protected.

What evidence will the IRS be looking for during an audit?

They’ll examine your business records, including bank statements, receipts, invoices, and tax returns. Having organized and complete records is crucial.

What are the possible outcomes of an IRS audit?

The outcome depends on the nature and severity of the issues identified. It could range from no changes to additional taxes and penalties, or even criminal charges in extreme cases.

Can I avoid an IRS audit altogether?

While there’s no guaranteed way to avoid an audit, good record-keeping, timely filing, and seeking professional help for complex tax matters can significantly reduce your risk.
