Worried about escaping an audit intact? Then you need Surviving an IRS Tax Audit.This book explains what to say, what to do, even what to wear, so that a visit from the auditor doesn't turn into a disaster.With special material pulled directly from IRS training manuals, this essential guide exposes the tricks of the auditor's trade. It provides you with a profile of People Most Likely To Be Audited (small business owners and contractors, step carefully!) and discusses whether or not the IRS can examine your "lifestyle" during an audit, rather than stick to the tax return. It also suggests three steps to take when an unreasonable auditor goes too far.A new section with answers to 20 frequently asked questions about audits and the audit process has been added to this edition.
