This presenter was excellent. His speaking style is concise and easy to understand. He presents the right amount of theory, practice tips, and application examples. I will look to further courses from him in the future.


I once had a taxpayer who needed to do an installment agreement but I did not know enough at the time to do what he required. Thanks to this webinar, I now have the knowledge to handle the IRS and OICs if the need should arise.


Excellent information. Speaker explained clearly and Slides were very helpful. This is a course everyone offering accounting and tax services should attend. The speaker's detailed knowledge was an essential part of the presentation.


This was a very good webinar, very informative. I have had clients in the past that had to make IRS arrangements and had to deal with our Senior Tax Advisors. With this class, I will be able to answer more questions for my clients on my own.


Venar has much good information to share which is quite useful to the practicing tax accountant. His webinar was helpful for me. He displays much knowledge in his field. Great presentation!


Mr.Ayar once again provided a detailed explanation of how Offers-in-Compromise works. I feel confident that I can prepare a client in the best way possible to ensure their offer will be accepted.
