Discover best practices for working with clients in the IRS collection process

If a taxpayer does not pay their taxes on time and in full, the IRS will send out a bill for the amount owed. This signals that the collection process has begun and will continue until the liability is satisfied. Clients rely on their CPA tax practitioner to guide them through this process and minimize any associated interest and penalties.

This webcast covers the various stages in the collection process and takes a closer look at recent collection initiatives, various payment agreement options, passport revocations and more. How the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact current collection operations will also be discussed.

Join industry experts Larry Wolfe, CPA and Cory Stigile, CPA, from the AICPA’s Tax Practice and Procedures Committee, and Stan Green, CPA, as they share best practices for effectively and efficiently working with clients in the collection process, and bringing them back into compliance.
