Part 2: Navigating Your Client Through the IRS Appeals ProcessEven though a client’s matter may be taken directly to the court, utilizing IRS Appeals usually results in saving your client both time and money. Discuss the misunderstood process through IRS Appeals. Learning Objectives
Due to IRS issue focused examinations, CPAs need to understand what types of returns are selected for examination and ways to help clients survive an IRS audit with little or no change. As a result of issue focused examinations, CPAs must understand what are the high audit risk area issues and what the IRS is focusing on when a return is examined. In addition, because tax-related identity theft is a common issue for many taxpayers, it is critical for CPAs to understand the procedures necessary to resolve this matter for their clients.Major Topics• Criteria that the IRS uses to select returns for examination• Worker classification determinations on who is an employee and who is an independent contractor• S corporation officer’s reasonable compensation issues• Responsibilities to pay the employment taxes when the business defaults• Tax-related identity theft procedures
