Most Audited City in Every State


To identify the city in each state where you are most likely to be audited, 24/7 Wall St. analyzed data on tax returns and audits, originally compiled by Tax Notes, on the metropolitan statistical area (MSA) level. Weighted averages for audit rates were calculated using American Community Survey (ACS) 2017 5-Year Estimates for population on a county level.

Median household income, poverty rates, and educational attainment by MSA and state also came from the ACS.
