Successfully Represent your Clients – By Understanding IRS Enforcement Priorities
Over the past several years, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has seen its budget cut significantly. There has been a corresponding reduction in the quality of service provided by the IRS. It has dramatically reduced its enforcement efforts. It is a new enforcement environment – the IRS has changed collection priorities and procedures, and there have been many new and important developments that will impact your clients. You must be aware of these changes.
Join this session, where taxation attorney Robert McKenzie will examine the methods the IRS is using in the new enforcement environment. McKenzie will cover new IRS examination priorities and procedures, IRS collection priorities and procedures, IRS criminal investigation initiatives, and recent important developments for practitioners. You will learn about the taxpayer advocate services report on problems in the tax system, new procedures at IRS campuses, and the impact of new IRS leadership.
This session will cover:
