Civil Fraud Investigation by the Internal Revenue Service (2019)
Under most circumstances, the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) has three (3) years, or possibly six (6) years to audit you.
One major exception is Civil Tax Fraud, in which the statute of limitations may never expire.
IRS Civil Fraud Has No Statute of Limitations
It is important to note that the IRS does not typically run around (draining already limited resources) and start auditing people for tax fraud violations that occurred 25 years ago.
With that said, most people do not want to spend their days (especially their “golden years”) worrying about whether or not they are going to get the wrong guy or gal at the IRS on the wrong day – looking to make an example out of them.
