Does being audited by IRS affect naturalization?

Lisbeth writes, "Three years ago, I was audited by the Internal Revenue Agency.  Once I provided the explanation that they asked me for, without any meetings or involvement of attorneys, the matter was resolved.  Eventually, I also received my refund.  Now that I am applying for naturalization, should I be concerned that the tax drama will be an issue?"

The most important consideration for USCIS is whether you owe any money to a government agency.  As long as that is not the case, you are cleared for naturalization.  Just get copies of your tax return from the IRS and they will show clearly that you owe nothing to them.  It should not be raised at the interview either.
