Year-End Update on IRS Audits, Controversy, Penalties and Collections
December 12, 2018
Live Webinar
11:00 a.m. - Noon ET


The Cherry Bekaert Federal Tax Controversy team will highlight IRS activity over the last six months. Much has happened for us to discuss: more audit campaigns have been announced by the Large Business and International (LB&I) Division; new penalties from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) take effect in 2018; IRS collections division is finally starting to use its power to restrict passports of taxpayers; and a new commissioner is installed. We’ll discuss these and other topics to keep you up-to-date.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the new audit campaign issues from LB&I
  • Clarify changes made to the appeals process to hold more in-person meetings
  • Walk through the penalties introduced under TCJA
  • Address changes for taxpayers with international activity and assets abroad
