In Washington, an individual taxpayer is not likely to deal with an audit beyond an IRS audit, as the state does not assess individual taxes. The state, county or local municipality may perform tax audits for businesses, occupations, or sales and uses taxes.

  • Different types of audit examinations apply for different taxpayers. If you are an individual with a straightforward tax discrepancy, the IRS may simply do a correspondence examination, which could involve filling out forms by mail and producing the right information for the IRS.
  • If the questions are more complex, an office examination may take place, which will likely involve interacting with a tax compliance officer in person. Field examinations may also be used to thoroughly review a taxpayer's accounting records. These are most often conducted for businesses with more complex income and liabilities.
