This course will take you through a practical discussion on dealing with the IRS. As staffing at the IRS becomes more stressed understanding how to navigate the IRS can save the practitioner time that can translate to more effective and profitable representation of your client before the IRS or easing the task of simply trying to solve a perplexing issue. Audits have become more difficult with the increasing reliance on correspondence exams. Notices are at an all-time high as IRS kicks their computers into high gear trying to encourage compliance from taxpayers. Knowing how to effectively communicate with the IRS, presenting your response in a manner that the IRS expects, and understanding IRS timelines grows in importance. IRS continues to present opportunities to taxpayers who have fallen out of compliance with programs such as the EXPANDED Streamlined Installment Program, offering more taxpayers the opportunity to voluntarily reclassify workers (VCSP) as employees with a much lower cost, removing liens from taxpayer credit records and expanded tolerances for the Offer in Compromise Program. Audits: The fivestep process which will make you an audit star. Appeals: How to obtain an appeals hearing and how to be victorious at the appeals hearing Penalty abatement: The cases you need to know about to permit the IRS to abate those pesky penalties. Collections: How to successfully obtain an agreed Offer in Compromise. Installment Agreements: The little details make a big difference.  Available November 2017 CPE credit expires 1 year from release date
