Does an IRS audit ever begin with a phone call? Or is this a scam?
Scam. The IRS contacts people via mail.

It very well could be a scam. Never give info over the phone and verify the person is actually from the IRS.

A IRS agent will identify themselves with there last name and ten digit federal id #. The Service will contact by mail, but will make outgoing calls. There is never a demand for money or a threat of jail time. Don t be scammed. If someone says you have a tax issue, check your records on IRS. gov or call.

whatever this "auditor" does - there is no way you would ever have to pay the agent anything , especially since all they would be doing is information gathering, so if they ask for any money or threaten you with fines or something, then it is a total scam - get their IRS ID and drivers license info and photocopy it right up front - if they refuse - tell em to hit the bricks being a Corporate accountant, I don't think I have ever been contacted by the IRS by phone - Official IRS written notices - spit out by a computer have always been the first contact I have ever seen - same thing when they cam after me for doing something wrong on a tax return years ago - letter first
