One of the objectives of tax audit is to ascertain/derive/report the requirements of Form Nos. 3CA/3CB and 3CD. Apart from reporting requirements of Form Nos. 3CA/3CB and 3CD, a proper audit for tax purposes would ensure that the books of account and other records are properly maintained, that they faithfully reflect the income of the taxpayer and claims for deduction are correctly made by him. Such audit would also help in checking fraudulent practices. It can also facilitate the administration of tax laws by a proper presentation of accounts before the tax authorities and considerably save the time of Assessing Officers in carrying out routine verifications, like checking correctness of totals and verifying whether purchases and sales are properly vouched for or not. The time of the Assessing Officers saved could be utilised for attending to more important and investigational aspects of a case.​

The Internal Revenue Service periodically produces estimates of the difference between the income taxes actually paid and what should have been paid by all taxpayers. This is called the tax gap and for tax year 2006, the IRS estimated the tax gap at $450 billion.

This is called the tax gap and for tax year 2006, the IRS estimated the tax gap at $450 billion. In addition, the IRS reports that voluntary compliance with the income tax system and tax law is at 83.1 percent. The tax gap represents tax money that is never paid. IRS audits are one way that the agency seeks to reduce the tax gap.
