In the past, it was difficult to get into tax resolution. You pretty much had to be an expert on the intimidatingly thick IRS manual. However, now that tax resolution services are growing in popularity, there are tons of resources available that make breaking into the business easier than ever. Tax resolution includes many services and goes by different names (IRS representation, tax relief, tax problem recovery, tax resolution, tax controversy) but in summary, tax resolution is a service in which you help a client resolve their open debt with the IRS in a way that minimizes the debt as much as possible.
The IRS issues over 220 million notices each year to taxpayers. The IRS also asserts millions of dollars of penalties against taxpayers daily. Many of those penalties are abated due to quality representation.If a tax client receives an IRS notice, they expect their tax professional to be able to work effectively with the IRS to identify and resolve their issue. Penalties from the IRS come in all shapes and sizes. There are over a thousand different types of IRS notices – but fortunately, most taxpayers receive many of the same types of notices that require action. This webinar will help you to serve better to your client.
Session 1- HANDLE IRS AUDIT, APPEALS, COLLECTION & LITIGATION (LATEST 2019)
In this webinar, the presenter will provide an overview of the IRS administrative appeal process. The IRS appeals process also can provide a more beneficial and cost-effective means of resolving an adverse audit finding. Because appeals officers must consider the "hazards of litigation" when reviewing a taxpayer's appeal, taxpayers often have a greater chance at achieving a favorable settlement in an IRS appeal due to the appeals officer's mandate to consider the assessment's defensibility in court.
This webinar will give you a walk through of the process from filing a tax return to the IRS audit, IRS Appeals, Collections, and litigation at courts of original jurisdiction. We will also discuss the options taxpayers have at any point in the process with reference to real-life stories from the trenches.

Session 3- IRS AUDIT PROCESS & DEFENSE PRESENTATION
The Internal Revenue Service is increasing the number of individuals that will be selected for an audit this year and into the foreseeable future. IRS audits create anxiety and stress for both taxpayers and practitioners.
When dealing with the IRS, it’s not enough to be technically proficient and up-to-date on tax laws, regulations, rulings, and court decisions. The IRS has had to change its approach to auditing due to budget cuts and retirements. Examinations of individuals, small businesses, and large corporations are more focused on high-risk issues. As a result, tax and financial professionals need to understand the impact of the IRS shift in strategy and be prepared to effectively manage an IRS audit.

Session 5- INNOCENT SPOUSE RELIEF
Innocent Spouse Relief is an application (Form 8857) by an “innocent” spouse for relief from the tax liabilities of the other spouse that arise as a result of filing a joint federal income tax return. Innocent spouse relief has been around for a long time, but in 2013 the IRS issued Rev. Proc. 2013-34, an extremely sophisticated and detailed procedure for applying for relief in a variety of circumstances, including circumstances where there has been coercion, intimidation, or abuse.
Many married taxpayers choose to file a joint tax return because of certain benefits this filing status allows them. When filing jointly, both taxpayers are jointly and severally liable for the tax and any additions to tax, interest, or penalties that arise from the joint return even if they later divorce. Joint and several liability mean that each taxpayer is legally responsible for the entire liability. Thus, both spouses on a married filing jointly return are generally held responsible for all the tax due even if one spouse earned all the income or claimed improper deductions or credits. In some cases, however, a spouse can get relief from being jointly and severally liable.
