After you turn someone in for tax fraud, how long is before they are audited?



The IRS received the information – appropriate form and a copy of the tax return – on Feb. 7th or so. I wondered how long it will be until this person receives a notice of audit.
He’s my current husband. I could not file with him because of not trusting his numbers. It’s between 12 and 28K of deductions that he many not have been due. Hope they get around to him soon.

  1. Officially you will never know.

    Frankly the IRS gets a lot of the forms. They will sort them by value–amount of fraud, collectibility and then work top down. What’s significant to you may not be a big deal to them.
