Video: How TurboTax Protects You from an IRS 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. If this happens, our free Audit Support Center provides step-by-step guidance on what you need to do. We’ll help you understand why the IRS contacted you, determine what it means, and prepare your next steps.
For those who want even more peace of mind, an optional Audit Defense service is available for purchase before you file. With Audit Defense, you are provided with full-service representation by a trained tax professional. You never have to meet or correspond with the IRS. You're never alone with TurboTax.
So go ahead and get started. We’re there when you need us.
