Tax Administration and Practice 26-5 DISCUSSION QUESTIONS 1. Less than 0.5% of all individual tax returns are audited in a given tax year. However, certain types of both taxpayers and income—including, for instance, high-income individuals (about 3%), cash-oriented businesses, real estate transactions, and estate- and gift-taxable transfers (15 to 30%)—are subject to much higher probabilities of audit. One’s state of residence also affects the chances of audit.
