IRS and Tax Controversy Mid-Year Update

June 27, 2019


Please join this webinar to hear the Cherry Bekaert Federal Tax Controversy team highlight IRS activity over the last several months.

This is just a sample of the activities you will want to keep in mind for your business, your investors and your personal tax returns.

  • Identify the new audit campaign issues from LB&I
  • Update IRS position to include examination personnel in Appeals meetings
  • Know key question to ask when the IRS asserts penalties
