Michael Sardar presented "How to Handle Sensitive IRS Audits" at the 53rd Annual Heart of America Tax Institute

How to Handle Sensitive IRS Audits: Tips for Keeping an IRS Examination Civil and the Signs to Look for to Determine when a Civil Audit May Turn Into a Criminal Investigation

Navigating the Internal Revenue Service audit process is a difficult task. Handling sensitive audits that are likely to uncover significant income underreporting and deficiencies add to these challenges. This session covered strategies for minimizing the risk of such audits and guidance on how to determine when an audit may be turning into a criminal investigation, including the questions to ask and the signs to look out for. Issues of privilege and the right to assert a taxpayer’s 5th Amendment rights were also discussed.
