This course describes the audit process, including how returns are selected for audit, ways the IRS notifies the taxpayer of the intent to audit, methods available to the IRS to complete audits, and possible outcomes of a tax audit. Learn the top red flags that trigger an IRS tax audit for individual taxpayers and other entities. Understand the examination rate among individual taxpayers based on income level, credits claimed, reportable business income, and international transactions. Review the number of tax return examinations closed during fiscal year 2021 by entity type and identify type of audit examination. Furthermore, delve into how entities organized as corporations, flow-through entities, and estates are commonly selected for a tax audit.

This basic level course is most beneficial to professionals new to federal tax audits who may be at the staff or entry level in organization but also for a seasoned professional with limited exposure to federal tax audits.
