Ten Ways to Avoid a Tax Audit in Arizona – #3: Don’t make it TOO Easy for the IRS

There are few things Arizonans dread more than the news that they will be getting audited by the IRS. Even the most scrupulous of taxpayers can spend many sleepless nights wondering if they have categorized and documented their deductions and credits properly.
In this series of blogs, we will look at the ten basic steps you can take to minimize the chances of getting that scary audit letter in the mail.
#3: Don’t make it TOO Easy for the IRS
The IRS offers taxpayers a convenient electronic method for filing taxes. Two out of three taxpayers were already filing their taxes electronically in 2008 – but it might not be a good idea for you. While you have a duty to file your taxes truthfully and accurately, you are not required to make it super easy for the IRS to access all the information on your return.
Despite all the benefits of electronic filing – ease, speed, reduced paper waste, and etc. – if you are worried about getting audited you may be better off sticking to paper filing until you are required to do otherwise.
