Why does the UIA conduct audits/investigations?

Section 9 of the MES Act gives the Agency the authority to audit/review the books and records of employers to assure compliance with the tax requirements
of the Act and Agency polices and procedures. Employers are required, by law, to comply with an audit/investigation request from the Agency, as they are legally required to comply with similar requests from other taxing authorities.
