Description :

Seventy-five percent of all IRS audits are conducted through correspondence rather than in face-to-face confrontation. The audits, which are automated and centralized, are conducted using standardized and extremely inflexible procedures. Although it would seem that this type of audit would be less burdensome, in a majority of situations it amounts to trying to establish a pen pal relationship with a pre-programmed computer.

This course is led by IRS expert, Stu Sobel, whose 49 years in practice include 30 years as an IRS employee. During those 30 years, he held a number of positions in examination functions including high-level management. By making the IRS correspondence and matching programs more understandable, Stu will lessen the stress for you and your clients and will make these audits less "taxing."

Who Should Attend: All levels of practitioners who need the knowledge and tools to represent clients before the Internal Revenue Service.
