Generally, there is a 3 year statute of limitations for the IRS to notify you of an audit. The statute of limitations is extended to 6 years if the taxpayer omits gross income in excess of 25% of the amount of gross income stated in the return filed with the IRS. There is no statute of limitations in the case of a false tax return or fraudulent tax return filed with the IRS with the intent to evade any tax.
