This topic will provide negotiation tips for installment agreements, offers in compromise and what to do when faced with a residence seizure. The material will also address selling real estate after a lien has been filed and how to best represent high income non-filers who have been recently targeted by an IRS initiative. The information will also provide tips on eggshell audits; responding to information document requests and summonses; as well as audit reconsideration and tax court.
