How to Prepare for an IRS Tax Audit
Filing taxes can be a daunting process, but for some, it’s much more than that – tax audits. This stressful situation involves having the IRS put your tax return under a microscope to see if you reported all your income and if you overstated your deductions and expenses.
The IRS’s primary goal in an audit is to assess more taxes, penalties, and interest. It’s an intimidating experience that most Americans dread facing!
An IRS audit can cause even the most squeaky-clean of taxpayers to become fearful and anxious when defending themselves to an auditor. It’s understandable why the majority feel powerless in this situation. You also have to understand and get comfortable with, in the eyes of an IRS auditor, you are guilty until proven innocent. There are better places to be than just navigating the tax code alone.
