Course Description

Course Description

Since its existence, the U. S. Internal Revenue Code has been ridiculed, feared, and despised by virtually everyone. And why not?

As presented by the Internal Revenue Service, the code appears illogical, inconsistent, and incomprehensible. As presented, the code defies practically the entire Bill of Rights: requiring citizens to testify against themselves, allowing searches and seizures without warrants, levying fines and penalties without trials, and imposing a tax on the basic right to earn a living. As presented, the IRC would appear to turn everything we all thought we had learned in grade school English and Civics on its head.

Is it possible that we all just misunderstood those simple lessons? Maybe.

Making sense of the Internal Revenue Code can feel like trying to break the Enigma Cipher.

Any cipher, no matter how complex it is, can be cracked with the right decoder!

The cipher of the tax code is ever-changing, and so our methods to crack it must evolve as well!

Dust off that decoder ring and join us in this CE/CPEtax webinar as we explore the most efficient and effective ways to let your fingers do the walking and get to the bottom of your tax issues. 

The IRC contains the official, legally-binding tax rules that have been set forth by the U.S. Congress. Taxpayers can view the tax code online on the website for the Office of the Law Revision Counsel and this CE/CPE webinar helps you to use the Internet in crafting effective search queries for the same.

Learning Objectives

  • To discuss the research techniques from microfiche to microchips.
  • To analyze how to craft a search query designed to get you to your answers quickly and with as little scrolling as possible.
  • To discuss the value of primary sources and where to find them.  
  • To inspect how to spot an unreliable source.
  • To investigate the hierarchy of tax law.

Recommended For

  • This IRS-Approved CE/CPE webinar is recommended for CPA, EA, AFSPs, CTECs, Tax Professionals, Tax Directors, Tax Practitioners, and Tax Attorneys desiring to explore the most efficient and effective ways for tax research in the Internal Revenue Code.
