How likely are you to be audited by the IRS?

We are constantly asked what is the likelihood of a return being audited.  The answer is vague, but generally, less than 1% of all Audit-word-artreturns are audited.  That said, a higher number of international returns are flagged for audit. Reasons for audits include underpayment, higher income and failure to report a foreign bank account.

The following articles will give you a better idea of what may trigger an IRS audit.
