D too

We are looking for 2 kind of people :
those who have not been audited since 1985
those who have been audited since 1985 but were found to hava made mistakes

However all potential answers, except D, give a description of persons who have been audited since 1985 without any troubles in their returns.

In D it is someone that has been audited before 1985 : exactly what we are looking for
