Tax Audit Tips
There are several red flags which may trigger tax audits including:
Unreasonable deductions for home office: There are specific rules published by IRS to classify business and personal expenditure.
Mismatching Federal and state tax returns: If there is a difference between the incomes declared on these two tax returns, IRS computers will immediately pick it up.
High earnings: If your annual income crosses $100,000, it may attract the attention of IRS.
Excessive charitable contributions: If your contributions to charity range between 5 to 10 percent of your income, IRS feel it is a good reason to ask you explanation.
Mess up in alternative minimum tax (AMT): If you are subject to AMT, you should approach a tax professional in order to avoid calculation mistakes.
Incorrect reporting of dividend and interest: It is very easy for IRS to cross-verify interest and dividend figures as their computers are programmed accordingly
