IRS Increases Audits Of High Income Doctors
Face-to-face IRS audits of doctors reporting income above $200,000 rose 34% for the government’s year ending September 30, 2011 to 78,392, from 58,521 in the previous year. IRS field audits are conducted by an IRS agent, typically at the doctor’s office. They are substantially more in-depth than correspondence audits, which are conducted by mail and usually involve only a limited number of issues. Overall, the IRS audited 3.9% of doctors with incomes above $200,000, up from 3.1% in 2010.Back
