When the IRS Comes Calling (2018 Edition)


Re-Broadcast on April 19, 2018

What do you do when the IRS knocks on your client’s door? Fear, anxiety, jail time – many different ideas pop into mind about what the government will do because of a failure to pay taxes. But most of what our clients fear is more myth than reality. Think about their anxiety: Is the IRS going to show up one day and seize my house? Levy on my income so I cannot provide for my family? Shut down my business? Take my retirement account? The reality is everything is not fair game for the IRS, and there are limitations on what can seized, when, and how.

This course will give you the knowledge of how the IRS really works, how to defend against aggressive IRS actions, and ultimately, reach settlement and case resolution.

Key topics to be discussed:

•   Learn about the Internal Revenue Code laws and IRS procedures that limit the government’s power to levy income and seize assets
•   Understand defenses to IRS enforcement actions, including implementing due process and the filing of collection appeals
•   Discover how the IRS really goes about collecting taxes and how to negotiate with each level of enforcement, from Automated Collection Service to high-level Revenue Officers
•   Implement IRS settlement options, including negotiating installment agreements, offers in compromise, hardship forbearance, penalty abatement, and the statute of limitations on collection

Accreditation Policy
myLawCLE will seek credit where attending attorneys are primarily licensed for all of its live webinars and live teleconferences, except in states which allow for reciprocity (see reciprocity section below). Credit for CLE in a self-study format is sought for in most states; however, some states do not allow for CLE credit to be earned in a self-study format (see the self-study section below). Many states typically decide whether a program qualifies for MCLE credit in their jurisdiction 4-8 weeks after the program application is submitted. For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program. Credit hours granted are subject to approval from each state.

Additionally, some states allow for credit to be granted on a 1:1 reciprocal basis for courses approved in another mandatory CLE jurisdiction state. This is known as a reciprocity provision and includes the following states: AK, AR, CO, FL, ME, MT, ND, NH, NJ, NY, PR, and SD. myLawCLE does not seek direct accreditation of live webinars or teleconferences in these states.

On-demand CLE
myLawCLE will seek on-demand approval in all states except Virginia and Arkansas (outside reciprocal provisions stated above).

myLawCLE Credit Guarantee

Additionally, on all online CLE programs application for approval will be made in all states where attending attorneys are primarily licensed in. If a registered attorney does not receive credit from their state for any reason, a full refund will be granted.
