What Triggers an IRS Audit?

As time has progressed, the IRS has become more likely to target wealthy individuals with IRS audits, though this does not exclude mid- to lower-range income individuals from receiving audits. If you are a high-income professional or a business earning more than one million dollars per year, your likelihood of an IRS audit is higher than others. 

In addition to actual income, filing estate tax returns and reporting high amounts of charitable donations can trigger audits. As with income tax returns, the larger the estate tax return, the more likely it is for the IRS to target you with an audit. Charitable donations reported on a tax return that is in excess of the expected norm for your income will also likely trigger an audit by the IRS. While these are three common triggers for an audit, other triggers include:
  • Failing to Report All Income
  • Taking Losses on Rental Properties
  • Writing Off Alimony
  • Failing to Report Foreign Accounts and Holdings
  • Taking Early Retirement Payouts
