The economic forecast may be looking up but for too many Taxpayers the hard reality is still a large tax debt, aggravated by penalties and interest.  For many, paying these assessments can be crippling or impossible. But unless they act, the demand letters, threats to levy against bank accounts, wages, and property will not stop.  Additional penalties and interest will also be imposed, further increasing the debt.  It may feel as though the game is over but in fact this is the moment when our clients need our help most. 

This seminar will focus on the tools and strategies attorneys can deploy on their clients’ behalf, particularly with the "friendlier" IRS and its fresh start initiative.  By lecture and example, this program will cover:

Taxpayer defenses
- statutes of limitations
- misclassification
- spousal defenses
- due process notices
- reconsideration 

Alternatives to Collections
- installment agreements
- offers in compromise
- currently non-collectible status
- bankruptcy

By taking an active role in the collection process, attorneys can protect their clients from abuses of excess, help them regain a measure of control over their lives and property, and formulate a plan by which these difficult situations can eventually be resolved.

At the end of this Seminar you will be able to competently assess a collections case for the best collection option available.
