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

Learn what to expect from an IRS examination and the options for resolving or disputing the examination.

The IRS is one of the most intimidating and overwhelming government agencies for taxpayers and tax professionals. Therefore, it is important that a return preparer and other tax professionals understand how and when to respond to the IRS, whether in a civil examination or a criminal investigation. This material will discuss what to expect from an IRS examination and the options for resolving or disputing an IRS examination by working with the IRS Appeals Division or litigating a tax case in U.S. Tax Court or in refund litigation. We will also discuss how to make a voluntary disclosure to the IRS and the basics of an IRS criminal investigation.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to distinguish between the various penalties
  • You will be able to identify taxpayers rights in an IRS exam
  • You will be able to recognize best practices during an IRS exam
