Course Description

Taxpayer representatives generally approach representation with the intent of doing everything possible to reduce taxes, eliminate penalties, and generally protect their clients from unwarranted IRS actions.

Frequently a taxpayer arrives at the professional’s office with a certain amount of urgency due to the fact that they have neglected to act on IRS notices. Many practitioners react immediately and commence representing the taxpayer without a proper engagement letter.

Engagement letters are critical in protecting your professional license and after this session you will understand:

  • When to Use an Engagement Letter
  • Effects of Engagement Letter
  • Considerations for Drafting an Effective Engagement Letter
  • Engagement Letter Checklist
  • Disengaging or Disengagement Letter
  • Negative Engagement Letters
  • Federal & State Engagement Letter Concerns
  • Attendees will receive a sample engagement letter

Participants will earn: 1.0 CPE/CE credit
