Why Am I Being Audited?
Many people are surprised when they received notice that their being audited. To their knowledge, they filed their tax return as thoroughly and accurately as possible and yet are still being examined by the government. The truth is that there are a number of different reasons why the IRS would want to take a closer look at a citizen's financial information.
Reasons for an IRS audit can include:
- Claiming too many charitable donations
- Claiming too many home office deductions
- Claiming too many business expenses
- Claiming too many round numbers ($100, $50, $500, $1,000, etc.)
- Failing to properly claim additional income
- Failing to make accurate calculations
