Reviewing a tax return prepared by a third party takes a special skill that tax professionals whose careers have been focused primarily on preparation may not have fully developed, but one that is necessary when looking at a new client’s tax returns from prior years and for providing competent and successful audit representation. This course provides a framework for spotting potential audit concerns or possible errors in a filed tax return and is designed to train students to identify tax return entries that are inconsistent, unlikely, or frequently examined by the IRS on the Form 1040, associated schedules, and selected forms.
