The number of accuracy-related penalties assessed against individual taxpayers increased from 58,366 in 2005 to 554,467 in 2014.  That is nearly a 1,000% increase over the past decade!  Are there more bad taxpayers?  Or, is the IRS just getting more aggressive about asserting penalties?  Regardless of the answer, responsible tax practitioners must understand what triggers a penalty assessment and how to protect their clients and themselves against such assessments.  Unfortunately, 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.
