Why Should You Attend:

What do you do when the IRS contacts you? Panic, procrastination, belligerence and ignorance are big mistakes. This webinar delves into what to (and not to) do when you receive communication from the IRS and also what to do when doing business with other federal, state and local regulatory agencies and lawmaking bodies.

Handling notifications promptly and accurately for all agencies goes a long way to stemming off a full blown audit over what might be otherwise a simple misunderstanding or common error.

What if you are audited by the IRS or another government agency, how should you prepare for and deal with this type of audit? There are tips that can assist in preparing for that audit you know is coming. They start with preparation and end with cooperation. But in-between you will need to make sure you plan your audit out completely from your perspective so you can meet the audit head-on fully prepared.

The best way to avoid an external audit is by conducting an internal one first. By conducting a full audit of the department you can identify problem areas where compliance is an issue and deal with them before they become the topic of an IRS or Department of Labor audit or notice.

Topic Background:

The IRS takes a variety of steps to combat perceived employment tax non-compliance, with the upshot being significant criminal penalties and convictions resulting in incarceration, heavy fines, or usually both. Whether or not there is a violation, and many times there is not, all of those steps begin with written and oral communication to the entities involved. Proper courtesy goes a long way to make your experience easier but more than that is needed to ensure successful communication.

Remember it isn’t just the IRS that conducts employer audits. The federal Department of Labor as well as the state counterparts to the IRS and DOL also conduct audits to ensure compliance. Handling notifications promptly and accurately for all agencies goes a long way to stemming off a full blown audit over what might be otherwise a simple misunderstanding or common error.
