Megan L. Brackney Presents A CLE Program Entitled “Preparing for a Tax Controversy: Gearing Up for Increased Tax Audits and Investigations” For The American Law Institute

December 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

On December 7, 2021, Megan L. Brackney presents a CLE Program entitled “Preparing for a Tax Controversy: Gearing Up for Increased Tax Audits and Investigations” for the American Law Institute.

Description: In an August letter to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig, members of Congress asked for increased IRS funding to pursue wealthy tax evaders and improve IRS services for all Americans. If successful, the current budget reconciliation package will deliver this requested funding to the IRS. The downstream effect will have significant impacts on attorneys advising clients in tax, business, or wealth planning matters. They will see increasing numbers of IRS audits, assessments, and tax collections against their high-net worth and business taxpayers, both at home and abroad. Become better prepared for further IRS scrutiny on the horizon, including audits, litigation, and even criminal investigations by registering for this deep-dive program.

There are suspect items on tax returns that the IRS has identified as prime candidates for detailed review and document production – learn what will be scrutinized and how to prepare yourself, after attending this video webcast. You’ll be better prepared to appreciate client obligations before conflicts ripen and will improve your conflict resolution skills with the solutions taught by this exceptional faculty.
