More than 200 million IRS notices are sent each year with hundreds of different types of penalties. When your client receives one or two, it’s not surprising that their initial reaction would be to worry, causing unnecessary stress to them. This course will show you how to diagnose and respond to the three most common notices and the tools to get them resolved in the most efficient way possible. While our handy tax resolution software will help you address issues quickly, this short seminar will give you a deeper understanding of what these IRS notices mean. The course will also detail how to interact with the IRS, the timetables to be aware of when responding to notices, and tips from a former Revenue Officer for getting them taken care of painlessly.
