i am in the process of a correspondence audit by the IRS and I noticed an error in my charitable deductions. My records reflect $2k less than what was listed on my return. I can only assume that this was a fat finger mistake made by my tax preparer but I'm afraid of the implications since I never caught this error. How do I acknowledge this when I submit my information?
