Megan L. Brackney Participates In A Panel Entitled “Coming in from the Cold: Dealing with Non-Filers” For The TRN’s Forensic Accounting Summit
May 20, 2022 @ 8:40 am - 10:00 am EDT
On May 20, 2022, Megan L. Brackney participates in a panel entitled, “Coming in from the Cold: Dealing with Non-Filers” for the Forensic Accounting Summit, an all-day program hosted by the Tax Rep Network.
Event Description: Taxes are at the heart of our economic engine. Though we have a “voluntary tax system,” it’s not THAT voluntary! The IRS makes a point of pursuing taxpayers who fail to uphold their end of the bargain and is currently pursuing the more than 10 million non-filers, many of whom are high-income earning. This full-day conference will bring experts from around the country together to review how the process works to bring in non-filers, handle the IRS, and what to watch out for to protect yourself from ethical pitfalls. It will also review reconstruction techniques that come up far too often in bankruptcies, divorce, and civil and criminal tax matters, with an emphasis on how to present the information to the IRS. Finally, we will review how to lay the groundwork early to avoid or abate penalties when these issues arise.
Panel Description: The IRS is pursuing more than 10 million non-filers that they have already identified, plus countless others that get swept up in ongoing audits and investigations. For those taxpayers not yet contacted, interesting decisions await: to simply file or submit a request to be pre-cleared into voluntary disclosure? And which one is best for what situation? Our panel of professionals will review the current state of voluntary disclosure, how to determine which option is best for the client, and how to bring them in without triggering a criminal referral.
