What you will learn

  • Understand what the IRS is focusing on in auditing individuals and selected businesses
  • Help clients reduce their exposure to additional tax assessments
  • Determine strategies for dealing with IRS examiners and presenting your clients’ tax positions in the best light possible


Recently, the IRS has dramatically ramped-up its examination of specific individuals and small business taxpayers. Now, more than ever, CPAs need clients to understand the need for documentation and procedures to substantiate what IRS auditors are pursuing. Learn the high audit risk areas and ways to help clients survive an IRS audit with little or no change. It is critical for CPAs in public accounting to understand the risk to clients and to themselves in tax return preparation and planning.
