- Friday, July 15th -

Presented by the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers.

One day to grow your tax resolution knowledge!

The IRS is constantly evolving and changing. It’s up to practitioners like you to stay up to date on the latest best practices to best serve your clients.

Our Conference Series exists for one reason – to help you increase your tax resolution confidence and capabilities. We want to help make you as efficient, effective, and profitable as possible!

The Summer Conference is your chance to hear presentations on hot topics and receive critical updates that effect your IRS representation business. The one day event will be jam packed with a total of 6 presentations taught by 6 different instructors. Set aside just one day to gain skills and knowledge to help you better represent your clients before the IRS.

I always leave “full” when I attend a Super Conference. Information given is always relevant and immediately applicable to my practice!

How to Avoid being blindsided by the IRS when you submit an OIC

Presented by Angelene Wierzbic, EA, CTRS

Sometimes we have a client with a perfect OIC scenario, but when we submit it to the IRS, they blindside us with a hidden scenario that we were unaware of and return the OIC.  Or even worse, we get past that processing phase just to find out some pitfall catches us and causes a rejection.

There are hidden compliance issues which can prevent processing that we should be aware of as practitioners.  Things like unassessed Trust Fund Taxes can deem your OIC unprocessable.  Don’t fall into the IRS trap and get your perfect OIC bounced.

By the end of this course you will understand:

  • The importance of Current Tax Payments
  • How Corporate/Partnership Compliance Impacts an OIC
  • The impact of Trusts & Estates on an Individual’s OIC
  • Other Factors the IRS review during the OIC process
  • Things that may potentially disqualify your client from an OIC

Audit Reconsideration – Righting What Once Went Wrong

Presented by Steven Klitzner, Esq., CTRS

A taxpayer comes to you with a bill from the IRS resulting from a closed audit. He tells you that he has proof that he does not owe the money. However, it is too late to appeal and too late to file a petition in Tax Court. Miami Tax Attorney Steven Klitzner takes you step by step through the Audit Reconsideration process. Steve will show you how to get the IRS to reopen the case and correct the assessment.

By the end of this course you will understand:

  • How to avoid an Audit Reconsideration.
  • How to prepare a request for Audit Reconsideration.
  • Each step in the Audit Reconsideration process.

Trust Fund and Request for Refund (How to build a case to remove the TFRP using an 843)

Presented by Billy Fauller, III, EA, CTRS

You are likely familiar with the Trust Fund Recovery Penalty or TFRP, BUT – aside from appealing the proposed assessment, did you know that you can make a request to remove the TFRP by making an administrative request on Form 843 (Claim for Refund and Request for Abatement)?

This program will provide an overview of the Trust Fund Recovery Penalty with an emphasis on evidence gathering and using Form 843 to prevail on the IRS as to why they should accept your request for refund, effectively undoing the TFRP.  This will include what to request in a FOIA, what criteria need to be met for refund, analyzing the IRS’ TFRP file, and reconciling requirements in the IRM.

By the end of this course you will understand:

  • The Trust Fund Recovery Penalty or TFRP
  • Requesting and reviewing IRS records through FOIA
  • Gathering evidence to rebut the TFRP
  • Applicable criteria when using Form 843
  • Assembling your Form 843

CP2000: Beginning to End and beyond

  • What a CP2000 is
  • How you can prevent a CP2000

Federal Tax Liens: How to Get Them Discharged When Selling Property

Presented by Jack Beige, JD

Federal tax liens are like little time bombs, most taxpayers open the notice, read it and don’t really understand what it means. If they do open it, they usually don’t care because they’re not selling their home or property. Still others don’t even open the notice because it bears the mark of the Cain. It’s Registered and must be “signed for”, so they must avoid contact at all costs.

As we know FTL’s just lay there waiting. Then suddenly one day when the taxpayer decides the want to sell or have to sell their home or property, BOOM!!!. “Where did that come from, I never got that”.

As their tax resolution expert, when they decide to sell their property, you can be the one to reduce the pain and embarrassment. Whether the proceeds of the sale will full pay or only partially pay down their outstanding liabilities, you make the sale process go smoother for the attorneys, the title company, and most of all your client. Whether the sale of the home or property is by choice or not, you are the shield protecting the taxpayer’s interest against the taxing authority.

By the end of this course you will understand:

  • The property sale process from start to finish,
  • How to find out what the taxpayer(s) owe and for what tax periods,
  • How to confirm the outstanding liens and the CSED’s,
  • How to effectively work with the IRS to resolve the issue and get the sale done efficiently,
  • How to possibly get the moving expenses paid from the proceeds of the sale even if the IRS is not fully paid,
  • How to be the “best gift” to the attorneys, the title company and most importantly your client
  • How your first case can be the source of referrals from attorneys and title companies,

The Notice of Deficiency & AJAC

Presented by LG Brooks, EA, CTRS

It is not unusual for taxpayers and/or their representatives to disagree with formal determinations made by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Typically, the procedure is invoked regarding any “un-agreed” tax case that involves a “tax deficiency,” which in-turn may require the IRS to issue a “Notice of Deficiency” (aka “90-Day Notice”).

The issuance of the Notice of Deficiency entitles the taxpayer to certain “rights” with respect to pursing potential litigation and/or other judicial resolution options of the tax matter. Whether a taxpayer should pursue the tax matter subsequent to the issuance of the “Notice of Deficiency” is a judgmental decision that may be influenced by numerous issues such as previous evidence, substantiation, documentation, and viable arguments presented during the pre-Notice of Deficiency proceedings (Audit or Appeals). Additionally, practitioners should be equally aware of any other options that may exist subsequent to the issuance of the Notice of Deficiency and how the “Appeals Judicial Approach Cultural” (AJAC) Project interacts with the formal issuance of a “90-Day Notice”.

During this course we will:

  • Discuss and explain the provisions, requirements, and legal effect, pertaining to the issuance of the Notice of Deficiency
  • Provide guidance with respect to the representation of taxpayers subsequent to the issuance of the Notice of Deficiency
  • Demonstrate & discuss other “non-judicial” options available to taxpayers prior to the consideration of continuing a tax matter via the filing of a Tax Court Petition.
