Course Description

So, you got a letter – the IRS selected your case for an audit. All of a sudden, all those statistics suggesting that only less than one percent of taxpayers are being audited by the IRS are irrelevant to you! Why? Because you are 100 percent being audited! You can no longer assume that, like a friend of yours who did the same thing for over 40 years and never got caught, you are “out of the woods.”

Knowing what to expect and how you should handle certain situations can be a difference between successfully resolving your tax case and getting into trouble.

An IRS audit is a review/examination of your IRS tax return to ensure information is being reported correctly, according to the tax laws, and to verify that the amount of tax reported is accurate.

During this online continuing education course, you'll learn about taking over an audit, constructing records for clients who failed to utilize proper accounting methods, preparing records and power of attorney, as well as communicating with the IRS.

This online CPE webinar will focus on practical considerations relevant to those cases that are selected for an IRS audit.

This online CPE course will cover the following topics:

  • All About Audits
  • How Audits Happen
  • Why They Happen
  • What IRS Knows
  • How to Get Prepared
