On June 25, 2021, Don Fort moderates a panel entitled “What’s New in IRS Criminal Investigations” at the NYU Tax Controversy Forum, hosted by NYU School of Professional Studies and the Division of Programs in Business.
Schemes to defraud the IRS are becoming more complex every day and IRS Criminal Investigation is responsible for investigating and prosecuting those intent on paying less than their share of tax. CI special agents are trained to use specialized technology to wade through computerized financial records and recover data to help prosecute tax evasion. The globalization of business transactions, the pandemic, and a limited budget have made CI’s job even more challenging. This panel features the former and current Chiefs of IRS CI, discussing how the IRS will meet these challenges and continue to enforce the tax law.
