Will you be audited?
The IRS is ramping up its audit efforts, and thus there is a bit more likelihood that you will be audited. According to IRS records, about 1.1% of individual returns are now audited for various reasons. If you make $1 million or more, you are the most likely to be audited. Three broad groups have higher than average audit rates:
- Those with incomes between $200,000 and $1 million
- Those who file Schedule C (profit/loss from business activity)
- Those who claim the earned income credit
Of course, if you are in more than one of the groups, your likelihood of an audit is greater still.
