Master IRS Tax Collection Processes and Opportunities to Help Clients through the Collection Appeals Process
Increased IRS enforcement activities are sending more individual and small business taxpayers scrambling for professional help in resolving IRS problems. Key to your success in helping your clients is understanding the Collections process, knowing when to use the Appeals function, and being able to identify the opportunities to resolve your tax client's issue. This two-hour CPE webinar will offer you expert instruction on how to move from problem to successful resolution.

The IRS is using every tool it has available to identify taxpayers who owe back taxes in its efforts to close the "tax gap" and collect owed revenues. With its automated "underreporter" and automated substitute for return systems, the IRS has become better at identifying non-filers and is sending more taxpayers into the Collection Division inventory as never before. There are more than 12.4 million taxpayer accounts in the IRS Collection Division's inventory! IRS lien filings are up a staggering 1,600% over the past 10 years, and levies served on third parties have increased 475% during the same period.

Highly regarded tax controversy expert and instructor of the new CCH® IRS Representation Certification Program, Eric L. Green, J.D., LL.M., will provide a practical review of IRS Collection Division procedures, including how the process works from beginning to end, and discuss recent changes rolled out by the IRS. Green will share his seasoned expertise and strategies on how to successfully represent clients in IRS Collections proceedings.

All professionals involved in tax planning, tax return preparation, and taxpayer representation for individuals and small business owners will benefit from this seminar.
