Course Description

Tax crimes are specific intent crimes-requiring the violation of a known legal duty. The panel explores when a potential mental impairment should be considered a defense or mitigation during sentencing.


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.
