Over the past several years, the IRS has seen its budget cut significantly. There has been a corresponding reduction in the quality of service provided by IRS, which has dramatically reduced its enforcement efforts. The 2017 Representation Update will examine the methods the IRS is using in this new enforcement environment. Instructor Robert McKenzie covers many topics including new IRS examination priorities and procedures, IRS collection priorities and procedures, IRS criminal investigation initiatives, recent important developments for practitioners, the taxpayer advocate services report on problems in the tax system, new procedures at IRS campuses, and the impact of new IRS leadership.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Identify IRS initiatives in examinations
• Cite current changes in IRS collection procedures
• Recall the IRS offshore compliance initiative
• Recognize the IRS budget problems and its impact on your clients
