About the Program

This program will go over the fundamentals of tax audits in order to provide business owners, entrepreneurs, and practitioners with the tools and language they need to navigate the maze of an audit situation. The IRS audit rate will rise as a result of the new funds from the Inflation Reduction Act; thus, this program will familiarize you with what to expect and prepare you for the various types of audit situations.
