Tips and Techniques for Dealing With the IRS Exam and Collections Divisions

Learn how to resolve issues with the IRS Exam and Collections Divisions.

In representing clients before the IRS's exam and collections divisions, the practitioner needs to be aware of a myriad of rules, and internal IRS procedures. 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. Finally, the content will address IRS initiatives during the pandemic and how the postponement of certain deadlines will impact our practice years from now.
