There are 2 ways to look at this:

THE CHRIS MATHEWS WAY- After 9/11 he said only (or primarily) checking Arab men at Airports would be OK, since the hijackers were Middle Eastern. By the same logic, only looking at rich people or corporations for auditing would be OK since most people guilty of large scale tax evasion are wealthy (or corporations).

THE COMMON SENSE WAY- As I said, spending $5000 to get $2500 is simply stupid. All you have to do, though, is set the computers to disallow any tax return and bank account that have descrapancies smaller than a certain amount. In other words, unless there is a huge descrepancy, throw it out and randomly pick another person. Run through the same criteria as above.
