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.
