Course Description

With budget cuts and staffing shortages, the IRS has been increasing its use of automation to conduct audits and create substitutes for returns, or “SFRs”.  When these computer generated notices come out most taxpayers fail to even open and read them.  The result is that nearly 90% of Taxpayers fail to request their appeal of the audit or file a timely tax court petition, resulting in bad audit results becoming final.  During this program Tax Attorney Eric Green will explain what practitioners can do to reopen those closed assessments and save taxpayers from the government’s (and their own) foolishness.  Eric will cover audit reconsideration, doubt-as-to-liability offers, challenging the tax at a Collection Due Process hearing and qualified amended returns.
