What type of IRS audit is it?
Although the IRS has several different methods to check a tax return for errors in accuracy, the three main types of audits used are the correspondence audit (by mail), the office or in-office audit (at a local IRS office), and the field audit (at you place of business or tax professional’s office).
The three types of IRS audits are:
• Correspondence Audit (by mail)
• Office or In-Office Audit (at IRS local office)
• Field Audit (at your place of business or tax professional’s office)
The most common type of IRS audit, the correspondence audit generally deals with minor tax issues like clarification of a particular deduction or tax credit. The IRS will mail you a letter indicating which tax year’s tax return is in question and the item/s under review. As a rule, these types of audits are limited in scope, and can normally be resolved fairly quickly.
The next level of IRS audit is called the office or in-office audit, and in this case the individual or businesses will be notified that they are to appear at a local IRS office on a scheduled date. These types of IRS audits are more complex and require more documentation than a common correspondence audit.
The term field audit derives its name from the fact that the actual audit takes place in the “field” or the place of business under audit. Although not solely reserved for businesses, the IRS field audit is not commonly used to audit individual taxpayers. In this type of audit, it is typical for a team of highly trained auditors to actually office out of the business they are auditing, and cover a much broader scope of tax and accounting issues. The audits tend to be much more thorough, and can be quite lengthy.
