How far back can IRS audit crypto?

1 min. readlast update: 07.22.2022

The IRS has three years after filing to audit a return. If income is underreported by 25% (likely if crypto income is unreported), then the IRS gets six years to audit. If a return has false info (fraud) or is not filed, then the IRS has no limit on auditing for that year.
