AP Exclusive: Likely tax cheats flock South, West

FILE - This March 22, 2013 file photo shows the exterior of the Internal Revenue Service building in Washington. Worried the Internal Revenue Service might target you for an audit? You probably should worry if you own a small business in one of the wealthy suburbs of Los Angeles. Or if you’re a small business owner in one of dozens of communities near San Francisco, Houston, Atlanta or Washington. The IRS uses a secret computer program to identify potential tax cheats for audits, and researchers with access to the data say they have found large clusters of likely cheaters in these five metropolitan areas.
