Video: How TurboTax Protects You from an IRS Audit
At TurboTax we help you avoid the hassle of an audit.
The IRS audits less than 1% of all taxpayers. And with TurboTax you can make sure your risk is as low as it can go.
First, we’ll guide you step by step, to help you avoid making mistakes while preparing your tax return. Then, when you’re finished with your taxes, TurboTax double checks your return to ensure accuracy and avoid common audit triggers.
Our calculations are 100% guaranteed. If you’re ever assessed an IRS or state penalty or interest due to a TurboTax calculation error, we’ll pay you the penalty and interest.
Our Audit Risk Meter will show you just where you stand before you file. Of course, even with a spotless tax return, there’s always a rare chance you may be randomly audited.
