Inside the IRS, What are Agents Looking For? 
With an increase in audit activity, do you know the major issues the IRS is looking into? It is important to review your records in detail, understand the process and prepare for the audit interview. If the IRS audits your tax return, it will closely check whether you included all your income and took only the deductions and credits allowed by law. These audits are not random, and the IRS chooses returns that are more prone to error. Discover major risks in an IRS audit, and how your exempt and/or taxable club can come out on top.
