Course Description

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 their 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.

Principal, Ayar Law

Venar@ayarlaw.com

Venar Ayar is the principal and founder of Ayar Law and focuses his legal practice on IRS and Michigan tax resolution for both businesses and individuals. He has personally handled a multitude of cases including defending tax audits, negotiating favorable settlements for back taxes, setting up tax payment plans, arranging release of tax liens and levies, defending criminal tax fraud cases and advising those with foreign bank accounts who have not complied with reporting requirements. He represents clients with multi-million dollar assets at stake as well as those with only thousands in assets.

Born and raised in metro Detroit, Michigan, Venar returned to open a tax problem resolution practice when he saw the alarming number of taxpayers struggling due to the downturn in the local economy. He saw there were few qualified and ethical Michigan tax resolution lawyers, but an abundance of scam artists who were taking advantage of taxpayers who needed help.

Prior to opening his Michigan practice, Venar was a tax attorney at RJS Law, southern California’s largest tax law firm. Before working there, Venar worked for several years in metro Detroit as a busy and successful solo tax law practitioner.

In addition to years of experience practicing as a Michigan tax attorney, Venar has owned or operated several small businesses, including an accounting and tax preparation business, supermarkets and a hotel. His business background gives him a solid understanding of the challenges facing small businesses today.

  • Protect your bank accounts and property
  • Stop the IRS from harassing you
