How Many People Are Audited By the IRS?

 

How many people are actually audited by the IRS is a common question that people want to know. Most people are afraid of being audited by the IRS. By knowing the number of taxpayers who are audited by the IRS each year, they feel better about their chances of not being audited by the IRS.

 

Each year, only a small number of taxpayers get audited by the IRS. Statistics show that only about not .5% to 2% of all tax returns were audited by the IRS each year. That is a very small number in the chances of you being selected by the IRS and getting audited by the IRS are low.
