PLI Groupcast: Nuts and Bolts of Tax Penalties 2014

This is a webcast of the live New York session presented by PLI and hosted by the CMBA.
Credits: 6.25 CLE Credit hours

The number of tax penalties assessed by the Internal Revenue Service has increased dramatically over the past several years. For example, assessments of accuracy-related penalties against individuals and corporations rose from 59,708 in 2005 to 472,961 in 2010, a nearly 800% increase! At the same time, the Internal Revenue Service is focusing more than ever before on the conduct of professionals, through return preparer penalties, Circular 230 enforcement and even criminal prosecutions. Sophisticated and responsible practitioners engaged in tax planning or tax controversies must understand where the lines are drawn and consider application of penalties when appropriate. However, accounting and law school tax classes rarely focus on penalties, leaving practitioners to pick up the relevant standards and procedures from the trial and error of daily practice.

This one-day seminar is a unique opportunity to review the various tax penalties that can be imposed, the standards and transactions that can trigger penalties and sanctions, the procedures the Internal Revenue Service must follow to assess penalties and the defenses that can be asserted. We have assembled an expert faculty of experienced private practitioners and government representatives to explain how penalties work, why they are assessed and how you can protect yourself and your clients.

Registration: 8:30 a.m. Program: 9-5:00 p.m.
