Tax Representation: Correcting Bad Actions of Clients (10/7/20)

This instructor-led seminar will provide guidance to tax professionals representing clients who received incorrect or unethical advice, or clients that have a misplaced belief their prior actions were within the confines of established IRS rules. Attendees will learn the most common “bad actions” tax professionals come across involving examinations/audits, collection proceedings, enforcement action, civil penalty assessments, substitute for returns, alter ego determinations, corporate veil piercing, nominee liens, and ID theft. We will discuss the best way to communicate “bad actions” to clients once identified, as well as, how to effectively communicate why/how said actions should be corrected (now and in the future). Case studies will be utilized for application of knowledge and to provide a practical approach.
