The Notice of Deficiency & AJAC

Thursday, Nov 18th | 1pm-3pm Eastern

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 position that should be influenced by the numerous issues such as previous evidence, substantiation, documentation, and viable arguments presented during the pre-Notice of Deficiency proceedings. 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 issuance of the “90-Day Notice”.

In this course we will:

  • Discuss and explain the provisions, requirements and legal affect, 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
  • Explain, demonstrate & discuss other “non-judicial” options available prior to the taxpayer considering the filing of a Tax Court Petition.
