Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you today.

The following link provides excellent information regarding the risk of audit percentages for tax year 2011:

The percentages for 2013 would be lower due to major IRS staffing cuts as well as the epidemic of fraudulent returns being filed. The IRS uses the majority of its budget for collections.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,
