Tax Resolution Attorney John P. Willis Writes About Why The IRS Audits Those Who Report Less Income More Often Than They Do The Wealthy.

Tax resolution attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR, tells readers that the IRS is making up for lost time due to the pandemic and are focusing on the “low-hanging fruit” for audits.

Fairhope, AL, May 31 2022: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of, recently published an article on his website entitled “Fewer Audits For The Wealthy More For The Poor.” Mr. Willis acknowledges the challenges in terms of staffing and budget cuts the IRS is facing, while also acknowledging they are likely taking the “easiest way” at the expense of the most vulnerable taxpayers.

John P WillisWillis writes, “No matter how you look at this pattern coming out of the IRS it only makes sense when you know that the poor taxpayer is more vulnerable and less armed to defend themselves against an audit. While the wealthy have accountants and lawyers who know all the tricks in the books, all the loopholes and would fight the IRS tooth and nail were they to come a’calling!”

“Of course,” Willis explains, “the COVID-19 pandemic brought all audits to a halt for a couple of years, but now the IRS has some catching up to do. So,” he says, “they pick on the lowest hanging fruit as the following points out. “A study from the U.S. Government Accountability Office, released this month, found that in recent years, the audit rate declined the most for taxpayers with annual incomes of $200,000 and higher. At the same time, the IRS audited taxpayers with incomes below $25,000 at higher-than-average rates, Accounting Today reported.”

He adds another quote from a recent article, explaining that, “The Government Accountability Office (GAO) conducted research that shows, “The reason audits of higher-income taxpayers declined more than others is that these audits “are generally more complex and require staff’s review. In contrast, “lower-income audits are generally more automated, allowing IRS to continue these audits even with fewer staff.”
