What To Do When The Auditor is Bats@*t Crazy and Other Advice from TRN
Tuesday, December 29, 2020 | 1pm-3pm Eastern | via Live Webinar
Given how wonderful 2020 has been, Tax Rep Network thought we would throw 2020 out the window and ring in the New Year with fun filled webinar designed to celebrate the IRS’s finest!
Ever dealt with an auditor that you begin to realize immediately must be named Lucifer? The point of an audit, according to the IRS itself, is to check on how the taxpayer is doing in respect to their returns and reporting and use this time as an educational opportunity. Yet sometimes there are examiners who do not seem to understand this and have decided it’s a time to torture you and your client. Trust us, you do not need to take their abuse!
Meanwhile, working out a collection alternative with the IRS is not painful. Well, at least it shouldn’t be. However, every now and then you meet a Revenue Officer who is, shall we say, special? Some ROs decide to suddenly become auditors, others philosophers, and some just say some really stupid stuff. This program will cover how to handle the IRS employee that has gone off the rails, how to respond to the top stupid things we hear from ROs, and how to go nuclear back at the IRS.
• Describe the examination procedures auditors are supposed to follow
• Explain the taxpayer bill of rights
• Identify opportunities to get assistance when the examination process is not working properly
• Describe the IRS collection process
• Explain the issues raised by revenue officers
• Describe options when a revenue officer takes an improper position on a collection issue
Due to the in-depth nature of this workshop, attendance is VERY LIMITED to 150 attendees so all attendee questions can be answered.
PLEASE USE THE FORM TO REGISTER FOR THE PROGRAM. YOU WILL RECEIVE A SEPARATE WEBINAR INVITATION VIA EMAIL FOR THE PROGRAM.
EVEN THOUGH THIS PROGRAM IS CLOSED, YOU CAN REGISTER TO WATCH THE RECORDING AND DOWNLOAD THE HANDOUTS ON-DEMAND!
