Few things strike fear in people as much as an IRS examination (audit). This is especially true if you’re not sure that your tax reporting has been squeaky clean.
During an examination, the IRS goes through your income and deductions and makes you prove that they are legitimate. The goal of this exercise, of course, is try and squeeze more tax dollars out of you. The burden of proof is on you. You have to verify your income, exclusions, exemptions, deductions, and credits. We hope you kept all those records and receipts!
