I was audited last year, but with all the moving, I never received my audit paperwork, can I still file this year or do I need to take care of the audit first
While getting audited isn’t fun, having to also pay penalty and interest for late filing a return would be even worse. So go ahead and file your 2010 return.
While you’re at it, reach out to the IRS examiner that was handling your audit to find out the status. An audit is just not something you want hanging over your head.
If the audit is still pending, depending on your circumstances, you may even want to hire a tax professional to assist with the audit.
Disclaimer: like any decent tax professional will tell you, since you’re not currently a client of mine — though you can be — it’s almost impossible to provide complete and accurate tax advice over the internet without being aware of the taxpayer’s entire situation; therefore, I suggest you consult a tax professional before relying on any information provided on this site.
