IRS only Audits 1% of all tax returns.
However, the IRS found a gold mine in auditing those truckers and those in the trucking industry.
The IRS has found especially for truck drivers that they are poor record keepers.
As a result the IRS finds truck drivers easy targets for IRS tax audits. Since many truck drivers are on the road, many fail to keep accurate records and file current tax returns.

IRS Audit – Examinations
Enforcement of the tax laws is an integral component of the IRS’s mission.
IRS enforcement activities, such as examination and collection, target elements of
the tax gap and are a high priority for the IRS.
The IRS accepts most Federal tax returns as filed.
However, it examines (or audits) some returns to determine if income, expenses, and credits are being reported accurately.
Some examinations are handled entirely by mail, while others are conducted in a taxpayer’s home, place of business, IRS office, or office of an attorney, accountant, or enrolled agent.
The IRS enforces the tax law in a number of ways.
For individual taxpayers, some of the more common methods may include:
a. sending a notice to a taxpayer because the IRS has an information return
that indicates a taxpayer has income, but has not filed a tax return;
b. rectifying a taxpayer error by using its authority to correct math errors and
related problems on a return, as filed;
c. informing a taxpayer that he/she has a record of income that does not appear on a tax return;
d. conducting an examination by mail (correspondence examination); or
e. conducting a face-to-face audit (field examination
These Audit Techniques Guides (ATGs) help IRS examiners during audits by providing insight into issues and accounting methods unique to specific industries.
While ATGs are designed to provide guidance for IRS employees, they’re also useful to small business owners and tax professionals who prepare returns.
ATGs explain industry-specific examination techniques and include common, as well as, unique industry issues, business practices and terminology.
IRS Guidance is also provided on the examination of income, interview techniques and evaluation of evidence. So they may be helpful for business and tax planning purposes.
