Fewer Earned Income Credit Audits?

RIS and tax audit bias

Did you hear about this?

Some researchers at Stanford University did a study of the IRS system for conducting audits, and the researchers concluded:

The IRS system of who gets audited is…racist.

  • Because the study from Stanford (linked here) showed that Black taxpayers are at least 2.9 times as likely to get audited as non-Black taxpayers.
  • The study identified the high rate of Earned Income Credit audits as the reason why this disparity exists.

IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel responded by promising that the IRS is going to tweak its algorithms so that the IRS conducts fewer Earned Income Credit audits.

  • If this blog post upsets you in any way, please rest assured that’s not my intention.
  • I just figured you’d want to know that we might see fewer Earned Income Credit audits moving forward, and if you ever find yourself wondering why, you’ll know that this study from Stanford is a big part of why.

We’ll have much more detail about all the new Earned Income Credit changes, along with all the other new tax changes, in our tax update courses that are being updated now and will be released in “Version 1” form on July 1, 2024.

All Pronto Tax School Members will automatically receive the updated courses in your Pronto Tax School Account on July 1.
