My CPA tells me that there's a chance that the IRS will be auditing me this year and that really scares me. Can you give me a blessing (or advice) so I won't be audited?
Thanks so much, Mark (Moshe) from Brooklyn
Our sages teach us that where there is judgment in this world, there is no judgment in the Heavenly Court. In other words, when we judge ourselves, the Heavenly Court doesn't judge us. Therefore, the best way to avoid an audit is to do daily self-assessment, doing teshuva to Hashem for everything you might have done wrong in the past 24 hours. This will save you from an audit. Remember though, Jewish Law requires the we follow the law of the land - dina demalchuta dina. Therefore, if a person does shtick - dishonest business and breaking the law - it will ultimately catch up with him, one way or another. With that in mind, do your best to stay withing in the bounds of Halacha and the tax laws, do daily self-assessment, and Hashem will surely help you.
Blessings for a joyous worry-free Passover, LB
