Course Description

Save your clients money on IRS penalties! There are many types of penalties the IRS can impose on taxpayers: failure-to-file, failure-to-pay, failure-to-deposit, estimated tax and accuracy-related are some of the most common ones. But the full list includes many more. Join us as we sift through IRS penalty types and explore ways for you to provide excellent representation for your clients with IRS penalty issues. We'll guide you through what to expect during the IRS penalty process and reveal specific how-to methods using relevant court cases and Internal Revenue Manual (IRM) guidelines.

The IRS issues over 220 million notices each year to taxpayers. The IRS also asserts millions of dollars of penalties against taxpayers daily. Many of those penalties are abated due to quality representation.If a tax client receives an IRS notice, they expect their tax professional to be able to work effectively with the IRS to identify and resolve their issue. Penalties from the IRS come in all shapes and sizes. There are over a thousand different types of IRS notices – but fortunately, most taxpayers receive many of the same type of notices that require action. 

This webinar will identify the most common, actionable IRS notices and the solutions available to resolve the tax problems related to the notice. In this webinar participants will learn about the most common penalties that can be assessed against a taxpayer as well as how to abate them, including First-Time Abatement, Reasonable Cause, and Form 843: Claim for Refund and Request for Abatement. This webinar will explain the many types of notices issued by the IRS , including how to appropriately respond to each, how to properly request abatement of penalties charged, current IRS responses to abatement requests and focus on how to reduce or remove these penalties.

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.

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.

The information was clearly presented, and I really appreciated the examples of penalty abatement letters. I would appreciate if he would cite the specific court cases when making mention of those. Also, I don't know that there is enough time to do so, but one or two personal examples of his experiences are often helpful.

This is a common occurrence in our field, so to have that little bit more of expertise to go the extra mile is tremendous help. I have written many abatement of penalty letters over the years, but to have complete understanding of what the IRS is looking for is extremely helpful!
