Why did my tax returns get selected for audit?

Tax returns can be selected for audit for a variety of reasons. The most common one is that the income that you put on your tax return does not match the 1099 or W-2 forms, which the IRS has received. Therefore, it’s important that you calculate your income correctly, and also that you have all the documentation necessary to provide to the IRS in the event that you’re audited.
