I file on April 15th so I have less of a chance of being audited—most audits are determined by computer scores of each return that is filed regardless of when it is filed. Perhaps this may have been true back in the good old days when returns were filed manually. Now in the computer age, computers do most of the work and after you have been selected by the computer to be audited, you will receive a letter and your return will be assigned randomly to a local IRS auditor.
Rather than file and hope your Mesa AZ tax return will not be audited, file a tax return in Mesa AZ that you know will stand the test of an IRS audit. That doesn’t mean that you cannot be aggressive but you must stay on this side of what the law will allow. Scott Allen E.A. of Tax Debt Advisors in Mesa AZ has the experience of filing tax returns that will not be red flagged because of errors or taking deductions that are overstated. The penalties and interest of filing an erroneous return will more than offset the short lived refund you have already spent.
