Amir Aczel is a professor of statistics whom the IRS treated badly during an unnecessary and unjustified audit. For example, the IRS auditor repeatedly telephoned Aczel at his home before dawn, depriving Aczel, his wife and small baby of sleep. Wanting to avoid such a nasty experience in the future, Aczel used his statistical skills to detect the rules that the IRS uses to choose taxpayers to audit.
He used a super computer to compare thousands of audited income tax returns with thousands of other returns which were not audited. The result is this fascinating book. It explains 14 rules for avoiding an IRS audit.

I know this book is older, but the basic advice is still valid. The IRS audits on a set of rules. Knowing the limits of how much you can deduct, without triggering an audit, saves you money.

EX: you spend $100 on book. Should you deduct it as a business expense or ... a school expense (because you are taking classes and the book is on the same topic). Either way you will get the deduction. But, if your business expenses are high, you'll lower your chances of being audited by listing the book as a education deduction.

After reading this book, you can use computer software to do your taxes. Then adjust deductions on the right schedules to minimize the chance of an audit.

Easy to read with bold margin notes for fast skimming and yearly reference.
