I reported $10k of GROSS gambling income on my tax return. The IRS would have only received $3k worth of information ( I know I’m an honest person).
will I be flagged by the AUR program because it doesn’t exactly match the reported w2gs or because it’s more than what they know it doesn’t matter.
can someone who’s done this before confirm?
Thanks- so I won’t be flagged for reporting amounts they don’t know about? Sorry I’m new to most things and just trying to do the right thing but not have to deal with the IRS!
The IRS never objects to someone reporting income that the IRS didn't know about.
AUR stands for Automated Underreporter. It's not looking for an exact match. It's looking for people who underreport their income, i.e. report less than the IRS knows about. There is no Automated Overreporter system.
