Course Description

This program was recorded on March 27, 2019

The IRS and the IRS collection process are often completely misunderstood by taxpayers and, as a result, there is a lot of misinformation and fear surrounding the process. In this CLE, attorney Sam Brotman will help by breaking down the process in detail and demystifying the collections and how it works. We will cover what the IRS can and cannot do in collections, the types of actions that the IRS can take, and what each individual option is and the pros/cons of different methods of resolving collections issues. By understanding this process, you will be in a better position to advise clients and to help them make an informed decision when dealing with IRS collection issues.
