Bankruptcy/CSED Training Course 

Bankruptcy Cases are set to EXPLODE!

Are you ready to jump in and assist Attorneys?

With the impending explosion in bankruptcy cases due to the COVID Crisis there are not enough trained bankruptcy attorneys familiar with these rules to handle the case load and they need help.

This one of a kind seminar created by Roger Nemeth from Tax Help Software and hosted by ASTPS will show you how to calculate Federal Tax Bankruptcy Discharge Dates along with the IRS CSED (IRS 10 year debt expiration).

This seminar uses both a traditional webinar format along with hands on real world scenarios (redacted) calculations of real cases using real IRS transcripts. You will apply your knowledge and use the latest software to calculate accurate bankruptcy discharge dates and IRS CSED dates.

Attendees will be able to evaluate bankruptcy clients for tax debt resolution and tax resolution clients for bankruptcy options. The bankruptcy Means Test will be compared to the IRS Collection Information Statements to learn that the two forms are very similar and can be completed at the same time. On the final day attendees will learn how to locate local Bankruptcy leads and how to identify local bankruptcy attorneys who are actually working local cases.

Your Instructor

Roger W. Nemeth, EA, CTRS, NTPI Fellow

Roger is a nationally recognized speaker who in the past year has presented to over 30,000 attendees from the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA), Connecticut Bar Association (Bankruptcy Conference), American Society of Tax Problem Solvers (ASTPS), American Academy of Attorney-CPAs (AAA-CPA), California Society of Enrolled Agents (CSEA) and numerous other regional events. Roger is considered by many to be the nation’s leading expert on IRS transcripts and how to interpret the data. Roger revolutionized the tax resolution industry in a time when many were being investigated and shut down due to their failure to handle the complex tax issues that exist. Roger invented the IRS Transcript Report Analysis industry in 2009 when he quickly realized tax professionals were analyzing raw IRS data manually one taxpayer and one year at a time. In 2013 Roger launched Tax Help Software which quickly became the go to solution for tax professionals and bankruptcy attorneys. Every year Roger educates thousands of tax professionals across the country on how to analyze IRS transcripts. The THS Bankruptcy Seminar is Roger’s most advanced education session created to date. He created this seminar in a way that would allow the attendees to truly understand the concepts and do the calculations themselves.


Who is this course for?

This is an advanced course.

Attendees should be familiar with the basics of IRS transcripts and how to obtain them. Tax Pros should have a working knowledge of tax resolution. For example they should be familiar with the 433 Collection Information Statements.

Bankruptcy attorneys should be familiar with the different types of bankruptcies and a basic understanding of the Means Test.

Do I need to own THS to take this course?

Attendees will be able to download the THS standalone Bankruptcy Calculator with purchase of this course.

The THS CSED/Bankruptcy Calculator imports the transcript and allows the dates to be adjusted. Users will first learn how to use the tool and then proceed to doing their own calculations using real IRS transcripts that have been redacted. Currently the THS CSED/Bankruptcy Calculator is the only product on the market that allows the manual adjustments of imported data critical to calculating accurate dates.

Why is this course teaching both CSED and Bankruptcy Discharge Dates?

For Tax Pros doing resolution understanding how to calculate accurate CSED is imperative since the IRS’s internal calculations are incorrect almost half of the time per the IRS Inspector General. Tax Pros should also be familiar with the bankruptcy discharge dates when consulting with tax resolution options since it is a valid option for some taxpayers.

It is also a great marketing tool to work with and get referrals from Bankruptcy Attorneys since most tax debt survives bankruptcy. For Bankruptcy Attorneys the CSED is the date at which the IRS debt will be written off by the IRS. It is critical the Bankruptcy Attorney be familiar with these dates in determining if Bankruptcy is the best strategy for their clients.

“As an advanced level course from Mr. Nemeth and ASTPS, I was expecting an aggressive amount of material to be covered. The prepared materials that were presented left no disappointments and the extra “Easter Eggs” provided during the gracious allotments of daily Q&A sessions alone were more than worth the registration. Thank you for your commitment to furthering the industry and willingness to share your expertise.”

Great workshop! It was clear that the presenters actually wanted the attendees to learn and absorb the mountains of information they presented, which was a rare level of commitment to experience. It made me try even harder just to keep up with Roger to match his level of output. Great people!”
