Many IRS audit notices are randomly generated to ensure there are no large discrepancies on your tax return. Occasionally, however, there may be some items in your tax return that raise a red-flag and the IRS just wants to verify it. Regardless of why you received an audit notice, it’s important that you follow a few simple recommendations:
Don’t ignore the audit notice. It contains time-sensitive requests that must be addressed.
