What Can Trigger an Audit? Guiding Our Clients Through Tax Complexities.

What Can Trigger an Audit?

There are a number of factors that the IRS reviews automatically when running returns through their computerized system. Specific circumstances can trigger a red flag that will then be reviewed more closely by a tax auditor. Some common red flags that may lead to an audit include such things as itemized deductions that are much higher than the average for your tax bracket, consistent losses in a business year after year, higher income tax returns which allow for the potential of collecting more taxes, charitable contributions which are disproportionately high for a person's income, and complex investment and tax transactions without clear explanation.

At the Tomas Law Firm, attorney Tomas is a Board Certified Tax Attorney with years of experience in helping guide clients through complex tax audits. If you or your business has received a notice of a pending audit, contact the firm right away for experienced legal assistance.
