For the vast majority of taxpayers, there is not much need to worry that you will be audited. In 2016, only 0.6% of individual income tax returns were audited according to the IRS 2017 Data Book. Why?
For starters, the IRS budget has been cut resulting in more than 2,200 fewer agents available to audit returns. However, the "real" audit rate is closer to 7.0% as the IRS does not include the over 9.2 million notices that are questioning items on tax returns such as forgetting to include a 1099-Misc form.

The 10th edition of the Report to the Nations remains the most comprehensive and widely quoted source of occupational fraud data in the world. Based on information from real fraud cases as reported by CFEs from around the globe, the report continues to be a tremendous resource for those interested in how occupational fraud is committed, how it is detected, who commits it, and how organizations can protect themselves from it.
Among the various kinds of fraud that organizations might be faced with, occupational fraud is likely the largest and most prevalent threat. Occupational fraud—fraud committed against the organization by its own officers, directors, or employees—constitutes an attack against the organization from within, by the very people who were entrusted to protect its assets and resources.
