Course Description

Maybe the client was audited; was assessed a trust fund recovery penalty, or is the subject of a criminal investigation after dealing with the IRS Collections Division. There are many reasons why it would be beneficial to look at what the IRS file says about the taxpayer and their situation. This panel will discuss the mechanics of drafting and filing a request under the Freedom of Information Act, including what records are available, what documents might be withheld pursuant to various exemptions, and how best to make use of that information to help your taxpayer.


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.
