8:10 AM - 11:00 AM | Listen Up! The Revenue Officers’ Boss Speaks...AGAIN - 3 Hours
Darren Guillot, Director of IRS Field Collection Operations
If you missed the 2017 Spring Conference, you likely heard about a speaker that the attendees couldn’t get enough of. Luckily, he survived the Q&A session and proved his intestinal fortitude by agreeing to a return engagement! If you deal with the IRS Collection Division and Revenue Officers, you cannot afford to miss this opportunity for a second time.
This is your opportunity to meet Darren Guillot. As Director of IRS Field Collection Operations, he is in charge of the Revenue Officers you deal with every day. At our last event, Darren shared his views on proper conduct by Revenue Officers and his direct line phone number; proving his dedication to cooperation with the practitioner community.
Darren will describe the IRS’s current budget, staffing issues, and what you can expect in field. He will discuss:
• Priority areas of focus for R.O.s on Collection Cases.
• Employment tax issues and the heightened potential for criminal referral,
• Civil actions,
• Trust Fund Recovery Penalty assertion,
• Suits for injunctive relief, and early interaction and alerts,
• Impersonation concerns, private debt collection initiative, and the enforcement of passport revocation or denial.
11:20 AM - 1:00 PM | Information Please! - 2 Hours
LG Brooks, EA, CTRS
This session is must know information for all tax problem resolution practitioners. When you don’t have information from the IRS, it’s like driving blindfolded. LG will discuss the information IRS must make available to taxpayers and to you as their representative. He will also discuss the information that need not be made available to the taxpayer or to you. For example, requests for information made during the audit can be rejected by the IRS because (they claim) the records constitute investigatory records that are exempt under FOIA. He will explain the requirements for a proper FOIA request and how to present the request to the IRS. LG will also cover the types of transcripts available from the IRS and the information they provide.
