Title:

How to Defend Against IRS Penalties

SKU:WC-1015274
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

Description:

The Internal Revenue Code has over 140 penalty provisions and the Internal Revenue Service has dramatically increased the number of penalties it imposes on taxpayers.

From 2005 to 2010, the Internal Revenue Service's assessment of accuracy-related penalties against individuals increased by over 800%. Taxpayers who are hit with penalties have different avenues for relief, but often are unaware that relief is available.

This webinar helps taxpayers and tax practitioners understand the different types of penalties that the IRS may assert, how the IRS determines whether to assert penalties, and what taxpayers can do to minimize their risk of being hit with penalties.

The webinar will also give taxpayers and practitioners tools to defend against the assertion of penalties by the IRS, both at the Exam level and at IRS Appeals. Knowing how the IRS views and assesses penalties before the return is even filed is critical to succeeding in defending against penalties if that return is selected for audit.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
