How Far Back Can IRS Audits Go?

The Internal Revenue Service describes an audit as a review of an individual or a corporation’s accounts. The IRS will generally go back around three years when it conducts an audit. However, if the IRS identifies a substantial error, the audit can go back further. In these cases, the audit will typically go back for a maximum of six years.  While the IRS can go back this far, however, the IRS typically tries to conduct audits as soon as it can.
