IRS Can Detect Inaccurate Tax Reporting

The IRS can piece together a taxpayer’s income and deductible expenses if it suspects the person didn’t correctly report them. That’s what happened in one case when the tax agency performed a “bank deposits reconstruction” of a married couple’s income. The couple questioned the validity of the reconstruction but a federal appeals court ruled that it was properly handled because the taxpayers didn’t keep adequate records or offer any evidence to rebut the IRS’s calculations.
