“An IRS audit is an official investigation that may be the first step leading to a criminal conviction for tax violations. United States v. Peters, 153 F.3d 445, 447 (7th Cir. 1998). The audit places a taxpayer on notice that the government is looking into the accuracy and propriety of his or her tax returns.”
– United States v. Yip, 9th Cir. 2010
