Eggshell Audits


What is an eggshell audit?

An eggshell audit is a civil audit in which the return(s) under examination contain a material understatement of income, material overstatement of deductions or credits were claimed that the taxpayer was not entitled to, the result of which was that the taxpayer showed less tax liability than they would have owed had an accurate return had been filed. These errors can be caused by mere negligence or via willful intent which would indicate underlying criminal issues with the tax filing under audit. This white paper reviews what an eggshell audit is and what a reverse eggshell audit  is. It also discusses the warning signs to look for in determining if there has been a criminal referral which can turn an eggshell audit into a reverse eggshell audit.
