Tax Audits & Disputes
What happens during an IRS audit?
It varies. Sometimes they just send you a letter proposing changes to your tax return (called "correspondence exam"), other times they will actually have a local agent meet with you for an in-person examination.
In-person examiners are by far the worst people at the IRS to deal with; I had one tell me that she didn't understand why continuing education classes in accounting were expenses related to running a business.
You can write me to ask your own question.
