Q:  What happens after an audit?

A:  After the auditor's review, you will be told of any tax differences (either debit or credit). The auditor will explain each adjustment clearly to you or your representative before finalizing the audit. If you believe the auditor has made a mistake, or you have further information the auditor hasn't considered, please contact her/him immediately.

If you agree with the adjustments, the audit will be processed and a copy of all applicable schedules, laws, and rules will be mailed to you. Usually, it takes four to six weeks for the final copy to reach you.

If the audit results in additional taxes owed, you have 30 days from the date the audit was mailed to pay the tax and interest in full. The due date will be clearly noted on the audit bill.
