The IRS has done their research here, and now they smell blood in the water
Corte Madera, CA (PRWEB) February 29, 2012
IRS examiners are expected to give special attention to the 2010 tax returns of 2,500 randomly selected corporations with assets of less than $250,000, according to the Kiplinger Tax Letter. The line-by-line audits are an attempt to find areas of noncompliance by small firms and their owners. The results should also improve the formulas that select returns for audit.
The Kiplinger’s report should come as little surprise after the release of a study into audits of small corporations by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). The Inspector General discovered “an upward trend in the amount of recommended additional taxes generated from audits of small corporations.” TIGTA contributes this increase to new IRS guidelines for auditing corporate returns.
“The IRS has done their research here, and now they smell blood in the water,” says Georgia Rogers, President of ProActive Tax Solutions, a Bay Area tax audit specialist. Rogers encourages small corporations to seek representation when they receive an audit notice.
“Representation is especially important during a line-by-line audit,” says Rogers. “Auditors do not always understand the legitimate business reasons for all expenses, and may disallow reasonable deductions. A good representative can explain the unique context of your business and help you get a fair hearing from the IRS.”
