Audit Guides Help IRS Review Nonprofit Organizations

October 18, 2017

The Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) wants to help nonprofits and their tax preparers avoid the possibility of being audited. Available for download on the IRS website are Audit Technique Guides for nonprofits exempt under IRC Section 501(c)(3) and other IRC Section 501(c) sub-sections. Used by IRS staff members, the guides give insight into what the IRS examines when deciding whether to audit tax-exempt organizations.

More on the IRS’ Audit Technique Guides is available on the Nonprofit Quarterly website.
