There are limits on the IRS continuing audits year after year. IRS’s scope is limited by Internal Revenue Manual 126.96.36.199.5.
If an examination of the same issue(s) in either of the preceding two years resulted in a no-change or a small tax change, IRS has procedures in place to determine if an audit qualifies for a “Repetitive Audit” consideration.
