Managing the IRS AuditsBondBeebe
The IRS recently made an inexplicable decision to increase audits of small companies while easing up on large firms. Small businesses are perceived as being major offenders in noncompliance with tax laws because many have cash components that are not well documented and have loose employee recordkeeping procedures. So, how do you know what practices the IRS is looking for in auditing a business? How can you operate your business from a tax standpoint to keep the auditors away from your door? Sharing information with your accountant may be the wisest way to obtain technical clarification on some of the issues. After all, audits cost time and money – two things most small-business owners have in short supply.
