Man receives more than $100,000 after IRS audit

Georgia entrepreneurs may be interested to learn that one business owner came out of an audit with more than $100,000 from the IRS. An audit does not necessarily mean that the IRS will find something in the government's favor. In this particular case, the man had hired a new tax team and learned that he could have been entitled to refunds of approximately $102,000 from the IRS over the past few years. When he filed amended returns, the IRS responded with an audit.

Subjecting taxpayers to IRS audits

Georgia taxpayers may be interested in learning more about critical errors that could place them in a compromising position with the IRS.

If the taxpayer underreports their income by at least 25 percent, the IRS may extend the audit period to six years. The same rule applies to taxpayers who have understated at least $5,000 in foreign income.

What happens during an IRS audit?

A Georgia tax return may be selected for an audit based on a number of criteria. While some are selected randomly for examination, others are chosen based on the information provided in the associated documentation. In some cases, a return is selected for audit because of transactions conducted with others who have had their returns audited. Those who have had their returns selected for audit will be notified either by phone or by mail. In either case, a letter will be sent to confirm the audit.

Steps to take when preparing for an IRS audit

Georgia taxpayers may wish to think twice before attending an IRS audit alone. A problem with audits is that the taxpayer may be asked to answer questions that they would rather choose to ignore. And every word spoken at an audit may ultimately be used to determine whether back taxes are owed or underreporting of income has occurred.
