Introduction to Audits

Session#: 925-20

At some point, almost every tax professional will have a client who is audited. As technology evolves, the IRS constantly alters how, where and when the audit is performed. IRS agents can be intimidating, aggressive and at times, unprofessional when dealing with taxpayers and tax professionals. Whether the taxpayer receives a simple CP-2000 notice or is involved in a face-to-face interview with a revenue agent, this session is designed to prepare you for the moment when the client needs and trusts you most--during an audit.



Upon completion of the session, you will be able to:


  1. Identify a taxpayer's rights.

  2. Discuss IRS audit techniques.

  3. Differentiate between correspondence, office and field audits.

  4. Distinguish between practices to avoid and practices to follow during an audit.
