The IRS is focused on collecting more tax revenue. Equip yourself with the knowledge and understanding to assist your clients and protect your practice.

2 CPE for EA, CRTP

$52 for Members and $64 for Nonmembers

Includes webinar recording and PowerPoint presentation. CPE is issued after exam is successfully completed.

The 2001 tax gap study dictated how the IRS worked for the past decade. The updated tax gap study released in January 2012 provides insight on how the IRS will focus its resources and efforts in the next decade. This fast-paced, by-the-numbers look at IRS post-filing compliance will analyze trends and forecast how firms will be affected. This course will examine where the IRS has been, how it's currently operating and where it's going.

We will cover the following issues:

  • The tax gap and what it means for post-filing compliance activity for firms and their clients.
  • Compliance studies by the National Research Program (NRP), Government Accountability Office (GAO), Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).
  • IRS studies, enforcement trends, budget and notice activity.
  • How studies are affecting trends including notices, examination, collection and other compliance activity.
  • How studies from the past 10 years will shape IRS efforts to narrow the tax gap going into the next decade.
  • National study on how increased compliance activity affects firms and client relationships.

Upon the completion of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Describe current compliance trends and the challenges and opportunities for tax firms.
  • Assess whether your firm is using best practices for practice and procedure work.
  • Improve your client service and grow your tax practice using new strategies and practical tips.
