Course Description

As a Tax practitioner, you usually have to deal with cases that need clarity about what is the approach of the IRS in analyzing the details from the taxpayer. It is a very useful insight if your clients have to deal with and negotiate with the IRS about what amount they can pay for taxes. 

Especially for the professionals dealing with IRS on a regular basis understanding how the IRS looks at a taxpayer’s financial situation is imperative to success when negotiating resolutions for clients. This provides them the edge over what should be represented and how it should be represented. 

In this webinar, participants will get a key understanding of:

  • How the IRS analyzes a taxpayer’s finances
  • How IRS secures, verifies, and analyzes financial information 
  • How the IRS will use that information to determine the taxpayer’s ability to pay

This is going to be a very useful webinar for the tax practitioners who wants to win their clients negotiations or represent them efficiently.
