Course Description

Course Description

The Internal Revenue Service is increasing the number of individuals that will be selected for 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 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.

Major Topics Covered :

  • Overview of IRS Audits
  • How the IRS Conducts an Audit 
  • Audit Outcomes
  • Taxpayer Right’s During an Audit
  • Information Document Request (IDR)
  • Examining Internal Controls
  • Audit Reconsideration
  • Audit Appeal

  • To recall the ways of IRS conducting audits
  • To identify the questions you should ask the IRS about the audit

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.

Listen, we all know we're nerds or at the very least slightly weird because we find taxes intellectually interesting and generally enjoyable but this might have been the first time that I listened to a webinar that I felt like the presenter was a real person. The guy was funny but also highly educational. I feel like I could listen to to this guy talk again or go to barbeque with him which is a little rare with some of the presenters. I actually laughed quite a few times and not because the guy was telling us terrible accounting jokes but because it was a real person talking about his experiences with clients and the IRS.

Many attendees had problems with the Poll questions not appearing. It appeared there was no moderator. The speeches given at beginning, during poll questions and at the end were a recording. These programs need to be monitored by a LIVE moderator to assist people having problems.
