Thus, the need for a prompt and professional legal advice remains crucial even amidst the pandemic. Tax professionals should stay conversant with the ever-changing IRS enforcement strategies and legal revamps to successfully address their clients’ potential or ongoing tax disputes. Corporate executives should be equally current to take advantages of new opportunities to reduce federal tax liabilities.
In this LIVE Webcast, seasoned tax litigators W. Curtis Elliott, Jr. (Culp, Elliott & Carpenter, PLLC) and Barry A. Furman (Fineman Krekstein & Harriswill) will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the recent developments in tax enforcement.
