The IRS uses Audit Techniques Guides (ATGs) to help IRS examiners get ready for audits. Your business can use the same guides to gain insight into what the IRS is looking for in terms of compliance with tax laws and regulations. Many ATGs target specific industries, such as construction, aerospace, art galleries, child care providers and veterinary medicine.

ATGs allow auditors to uncover unique industry issues, common areas of noncompliance, customary business practices and terminology. For a complete list of ATGs, visit the IRS website here:
