ALWAYS CHECK YOUR FIGURES
One of the most common red flags for auditors – erroneous data entry – is also one of the most preventable. It seems simple enough to follow the advice to “double-check your return,” but surprisingly, people often are too careless regarding their taxes, said Noah Daniels, managing partner of Advance Tax Relief in Houston, Texas.
He advised waiting for all your income reports, bank and investment statements and other applicable financial paperwork to arrive before starting your tax return.
Correctly reporting dependents and exemptions, as well as ensuring that the numbers match, is important because the IRS's automated system will easily detect discrepancies.
Advance Tax Relief can help you make sure your tax return is correct by completing thousands of error checks before you file, so you can be sure it’s accurate.
HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY
Perhaps it’s common sense, but being 100 percent truthful on your tax return is an absolute must to reduce the chances of an audit. Realistically reporting income, deductions, credits and other figures can help keep the tax man at bay..
Not reporting all your income is a surefire way to attract attention.
“Outright lying, especially if you earn a six-figure income or are hiding large sums of cash, is definitely a behavior that will get you audited,” Noah Daniel,EA said. You should be prepared to look an auditor in the eye and support any number you claimed on your return, Noah Daniels EA says.
Self-employed filers, for example, should have receipts for every business deduction they claim.
CLAIM REALISTIC DEDUCTIONS
Unusual or unrealistic itemized deductions, either for individuals or small business owners, may raise a red flag for auditors.
For a sole proprietor who files Schedule C, which details profits and business expenses, reporting losses for three years or more could encourage an auditor to request proof that the filer is actually in business.
Filers itemizing deductions on Schedule A must know what constitutes a legitimate deduction.
Advance Tax Relief can help you determine what tax deductions you qualify for. Our Agents will ask you simple questions about your income, family situation, and changes in your tax situation and credits.
