Factual errors 

The IRS at the time of the movie didn't audit a year if it was over ten years old. In the movie they said he collected for 20 years and eleven of those 20 were not claimed properly. That is past the ten year mark. He had not been collected for probably a number of years so, those years would not have been audited and they wouldn't be entitled to anything.
