Audits

Larry Correia has a post primarily addressing possible election fraud in the Presidential election. However, his opening comments about audits made me think of something else.

When you run a business you will get audited by the government. If something your company does raises a red flag with the government, they will audit you. If there is an anomaly in your government mandated paperwork you must legally submit, it can trigger an audit. And sometimes, various agencies will just randomly audit you to make sure you are obeying all their regulations.

The IRS audits everyone’s financials to make sure they are paying all their taxes. That’s federal, but you will also be audited by your state tax commission. If your state has sales tax you will eventually undergo a sales tax audit.

ONE OF THESE THINGS IS NOT LIKE THE OTHER

My comment was:

Given that if you run a business, you will get audited by the government, it occurs to me to wonder about something.

What does anyone expect to find in Donald Trump’s tax returns that hasn’t already been uncovered by swarms of government auditors, including the IRS?
