Am I more likely to be audited as an expat?

Recently, the IRS announced two new campaigns focused on expat tax compliance: the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion Campaign and the Individual Foreign Tax Credit Campaign. As part of these campaigns, the IRS will address noncompliance through several methods, including audits. However, audit risk is determined by a number of factors and your audit risk will depend on your facts and circumstances.
