There are two types of people in Nevada: those who dread tax time and those who work for the Internal Revenue Service. You probably fall into the former category, especially if you have received a notice in the mail that the IRS is going to audit your tax return. This means that the IRS is checking to make sure that the financial information you reported to the government is accurate.
Many times, audits are electronically triggered when computers determine your credits and deductions exceed what they consider normal. If the IRS is auditing someone close to you - for example, a business partner - the IRS may look into your accounts as well. On the other hand, you may be one of the lucky few whom the agency randomly selects for an audit.
