eggshell audit is a civil tax audit in which the taxpayer has filed a false tax
return. If the falsity comes to light then there is possibility that the IRS
can refer the case for criminal investigation, and ultimately criminal
prosecution. Because of the sensitivity of the issues and the potential for
disastrous results, anyone involved in the audit must walk on eggshells. Hence
the term "eggshell audit."
Every tax practitioner who has represented clients for more than a few years has been approached by a scared client who has received an audit letter and who confesses that his or her tax returns were less than accurate. The failure to understand the best practices in an eggshell audit can result in the client being assessed a 75% civil fraud penalty or worse, criminal prosecution, and ultimately a trip to the federal penitentiary.
