Could my original tax filing be audited after I have filed a Amended return?

So if I filed my 1040 and 2 months later I had a CPA look at it and he realized some of the schedule C expenses shouldn't have been taken, so I amended the return and paid the IRS; does the IRS still audit the original 1040 or do they audit the 1040x (amended)?

    The would consider BOTH if they are going to do an audit.

    If the amended return fixed all the issues, then nothing will happen.

    They audit the whole return, that includes both things.  The 1040X ONLY contains the changes relative to the error.
