IRS Workshop: How to Represent Taxpayers with IRS Issues (No Tax Knowledge Necessary!)


CLE credits earned: 4 GENERAL (or 4 LAW & LEGAL for WA state)

Representing taxpayers before the IRS is an administrative practice, and the need for attorneys to represent taxpayers in trouble has never been bigger! Currently there are nearly 15 million taxpayers in the IRS Collection Division inventory, with another 7 million non-filers being pursued by the IRS. The point? There is a ton of business to be had, and if you can do a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or a real estate closing, you can resolve a an outstanding tax debt. Solving tax debts is not about tax expertise but understanding the process and how the numbers work for the Reasonable Collection Formula. So join tax attorney and IRS pundit Eric Green as he spends four hours walking you through everything you need to know to get started saving taxpayers, adding six figures to your bottom line, and why 2020 should be the year you launch an entirely new practice area – even if you know nothing about taxes!

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

•   How the IRS exam process works
