The economic forecast may be looking up but for too
many Taxpayers the hard reality is still a large tax debt, aggravated by
penalties and interest. For many, paying these assessments can be
crippling or impossible. But unless they act, the demand letters, threats to
levy against bank accounts, wages, and property will not stop. Additional
penalties and interest will also be imposed, further increasing the debt.
It may feel as though the game is over but in fact this is the moment when our
clients need our help most.
This seminar will focus on the tools and
strategies attorneys can deploy on their clients’ behalf, particularly with the
"friendlier" IRS and its fresh start initiative. By lecture and
example, this program will cover:
- Taxpayer defenses
- statutes of limitations
- spousal defenses
due process notices
- Alternatives to Collections
- offers in compromise
- currently non-collectible
By taking an active role in the collection process,
attorneys can protect their clients from abuses of excess, help them regain a
measure of control over their lives and property, and formulate a plan by which
these difficult situations can eventually be resolved.
At the end of this Seminar you will be able to
competently assess a collections case for the best collection option available.
