Defending Ohio Businesses And Individuals Against IRS Action

Ohio's IRS Offices: Hot Spots For Audits

The IRS has 10 physical office locations in Ohio:

  • Akron
  • Canton
  • Cincinnati
  • Cleveland
  • Columbus
  • Dayton
  • Lima
  • Mansfield
  • Toledo
  • Youngstown

In addition to providing tax answers and assistance, these offices are hubs for in-person field audits. Unlike correspondence audits, which are conducted via mail and telephone, field audits require you or your tax professional to meet with an IRS officer in person. Field audits make up less than 30 percent of individual audits but up to 90 percent of business audits, depending on the type of business entity.

Who Is Vulnerable To IRS Audits In Ohio?

Over the past several years, the number of IRS audits in the United States has declined significantly. In 2016, the IRS conducted just over one million audits, the lowest number in more than a decade. Despite this decline, however, individuals and businesses in virtually all fields remain vulnerable to IRS action. Just a few years ago, for example, the IRS audited Ohio University and its business practices. The university had to pay more than a million dollars in additional taxes and penalties.

Because IRS audits tend to target individuals and businesses with significant assets and complex finances, they often affect players in Ohio's leading industries, including:

  • Automotive
  • Steel
  • Agriculture
  • Appliances
  • Aerospace
