Protecting Your Client from the IRS Reducing a Tax Lien to Judgement

Presented by Angelene Wierzbic, EA, CTRS (2 Hour)

The IRS just assigned a Revenue Officer (RO) to your client’s case. Your client owes a lot, but there are multiple years where the collection statute will be running out soon. So, with fingers crossed you and you client wait for the Collection Statute Expiration Date (CSED) so the IRS will write off the debt and your client will no longer owe.
