The IRS plans to conduct random audits of 2,500 returns from 2010 filed by corporations with less than $250,000 in assets. The results will be used to update the IRS formulas for selecting returns for audit.
The IRS is also trying to improve tax compliance among sole proprietors. According to a Treasury report, sole proprietors accounted for 20% of the $345 billion tax gap calculated for 2001.
