Internal Revenue Service officials recently stated that the IRS will randomly audit approximately 6,000 U.S. employers for employment tax compliance and proper worker classification. According to reports, the audits will begin in February 2010 and are expected to be completed within three years. Employers of every size and type should realize that their compliance with federal employment tax obligations may be scrutinized, and should review their compliance programs with their tax advisors before the audits begin.
