Course Description

When a taxpayer cannot pay his or her living expenses, they may have their account placed in hardship, known as "uncollectible" status. But what does uncollectible status mean, exactly, and how can a taxpayer request to have their account listed as such? Our experts will explain what uncollectible status is and what practitioners should do to help their taxpayers be placed in a hardship category, so enforcement activity ceases.


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.

National Taxpayer Advocate

Irs logo

Nina E. Olson, the National Taxpayer Advocate (NTA), is the “voice of the taxpayer” within the IRS and before Congress. She leads the Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS), an independent organization inside the IRS that helps taxpayers resolve their IRS account problems and works for systemic change to mitigate problems experienced by groups of taxpayers.  

Ms. Olson was appointed to the position of National Taxpayer Advocate in January 2001. Under her leadership, the NTA‟s Annual Report to Congress has become an essential vehicle for change. It is one of two reports the NTA is required by statute to deliver each year, and it outlines the most serious problems facing taxpayers and makes recommendations for administrative and legislative change. The IRS has implemented hundreds of the recommendations she has made for organizational change. Members of Congress have introduced bills to implement dozens of her suggestions for legislative change, and 15 of them have been enacted into law.
