Anyone who is required to file their yearly taxes with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) may receive an IRS Letter 2202, IRS Audit Letter. However, for those who file their taxes with the most accurate information they have available, it is rare that this would occur. While this can be a very stressful experience, you will have the ability to fully contest each issue they mention. An IRS Audit Letter sample can be found through the link below.
An IRS Audit Letter will only arrive through the mail. It means that the IRS is asking to take a closer look at your tax return to check for errors. Once you receive this letter, you will need to send an "IRS Audit Letter Response" within 30 days of receiving the letter, to comply with their request and avoid penalties. It is also a good idea to work on your response with a tax professional who will be able to review your taxes, documentation, and help you prepare a response accurately.
