Course Description

Numerous taxpayers file balances due to tax returns. Some pay it in time, some pay it late, while some cannot pay it in the payable period after it being due. The IRS provides two major financial-based solutions to the taxpayers if they qualify:

  • Installment Agreements 

                         An Installment Agreement (IA) is an arrangement by which IRS allows taxpayer to pay over time. Taxpayers are encouraged to full pay to keep costs down (interest and penalties, user fee, etc.) Generally, no levy may be made while IA is pending, for 30 days after rejecting, while denial in appeals, while IA in effect, and for 30 days after termination of an IA.

  • Currently Not Collectible Status

                             Most common grounds for a taxpayer to be placed into CNC status is if collection of liability would create a hardship by leaving taxpayer unable to meet necessary living expenses. It is also relevant for for businesses who can stay current, but not able to make IA payments.

This online CPE/CE webinar covers the following key topics:

  • The webinar will answer key questions from the tax practitioner’s perspective like “what kind of installment agreement should my client be entered into?” and “what are the requirements for entering into an installment agreement?” 
  • The webinar will also provide a peep into other factors that affect installment agreements, such as Collection Statute Expiration Dates and Full Pay vs. Partial Pay. 
  • The webinar will also explore how Currently Not Collectible Status works and how to determine if your client qualifies for it. 
  • The webinar will discuss things like financial hardships, and situations in which the IRS can’t contact a taxpayer.

This tax CE webinar will be a key input provider for the tax practitioners for the clients who need financial-based resolutions. 

Learning Objectives

  • To familiarize with how installment agreements work, including what they are, how to set one up, what’s required, and the different types.
  • To recognize what the Collection Statute Expiration Date (CSED) is, how it works, and how it applies to tax debt.
  • To explore how an Installment Agreement is rejected and what happens when the IRS decides to terminate an existing Installment Agreement.
  • To define Currently Not Collectible Status, and how to qualify a client, whether an individual or a business.
  • To explore how to establish hardship.

Recommended For

This IRS-Approved CE course is recommended for CPAs, EAs, AFSPs, Tax Attorneys, and Other Tax professionals engaged in providing financial-based resolutions.

    About Presenter

    Venar Ayar, JD

    Principal Ayar Law

    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.
