Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi & thanks for using our service. I'll do my best to give you a complete & accurate answer. Please ask me to clarify anything you don't understand.
The only thing you can do is rely on bank records to verify whatever expenditures you can. If you are missing bank statement/checks, you'll have to obtain them from the bank.
Also, for any large items you should be able to get duplicate receipts from the vendors.
Beyond that, you'll have to wait & see what the auditor wants. Many items, taxes, insurance, medical, securities transactions, etc., can be obtained from the party you did business with.
