During an Audit is it allowed to amend the return if you can not substantiate a line item?

You can file an amended return. The normal statute of limitations for a tax return is three years. That means that you have three years from the due date of your return to amend your return. Inform the auditor if you are planning to amend a tax return under audit. Amending a return under audit usually results in a delayed audit process

Alternatively, you can provide the information to the auditor and also compute and give an amended tax return to that effect to the auditor to consider in the assessment of your taxes.
