Course Description

Voluntary compliance and enforcement of the tax laws are at the heart of our tax system. Over the past several years, the IRS has been challenged to develop new and more efficient ways to ensure that all taxpayers report and pay the correct tax amount. These panel interviews provide us with an update on recent developments at the IRS.


The IRS Representation Conference brings together representatives from the government and expert private practitioners to compare perspectives on a variety of topics involving federal tax audits, appeals, and litigation. The Conference covers a wide range of representation issues, from procedural seminars to substantive programs, estate & gift issues, ethical problems, current enforcement initiatives, sensitive audits, and civil and criminal tax penalties.

This comprehensive, two full-day event focuses on the practical issues and how to handle them rather than theoretical issues.

Please note: Enrolling in an individual session will grant you access to the entire two-day event.
