Skyrocketing tax delinquencies, more than 10 million non-filers, and increasing IRS focus on examination through the use of AI and data comparison is creating a new flood of taxpayers needing assistance. This is an area in tax which is in great demand, commands premium prices, and generates customer loyalty like never before. With more than 30 million taxpayers in trouble, now is the perfect time to start building your tax representation practice and diversifying your income. Most attorneys don’t offer these services leaving great opportunities for EAs, CPAs, and other tax professionals. This definitive workshop will teach you the skills needed to handle an IRS exam like a pro from everything to onboarding, getting paid (retained), the Power of Attorney, the client interview, and presenting the client documentation. The workshop will also cover challenging assessed taxes through IRS Appeals, Tax Court, Audit Reconsideration, Doubt-as-to-Liability Offers, as well as Payment and Refund Claims. Day 3 will review how to protect the innocent spouse from a bad joint liability.
