Preparing Business Tax Returns That Avoid IRS Scrutiny and Audit Red Flags

The recently passed Inflation Reduction Act provides an additional $80 billion in funding for the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) over the next decade, expected to translate to a big surge in IRS agent hiring and a significant increase in tax return auditing.
