The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), everyone’s favorite government agency, isn’t as out-to-get-you as you might think.  Most taxpayers have nothing to worry about (only around 1% of returns will be audited this year).  Still, even the most prudent filers can find themselves on the IRS’ radar, and some people are at a much greater risk than others.

The  following infographic explains how the IRS chooses who to audit, the chances of being audited, and some simple tips to keep yourself on the IRS’ good side.  Happy tax filing season!
