Facts that could prompt an audit of a Georgia tax return

In 2013, the IRS audited roughly 1 percent of all tax federal tax returns. However, there are specific factors that could increase the odds that a specific return is audited. For instance, those who made more than $1 million a year are audited at a rate of 11 percent. In comparison, those who made less than $200,000 a year were audited at a rate of .88 percent.
