Program Content

This online learning program, presented as a live webcast, will be also archived for QAS Self Study. The program will be available for viewing for 12 months after the live webcast. A panel of IRS and industry experts will present the content during a live, interactive discussion, where participant questions can be submitted. Questions will be answered live on the program or posted on the Resources page.

The program, through a lively round-table discussion and real time interaction with the audience, examines how persons who fail to file returns become subject to the IRS collection process. The program will focus on why some individuals fail to file returns and the tools available to the IRS for collecting unpaid taxes from them. Panelists will examine how collection decisions may be appealed and the rights of the persons subject to the collection process. The panel also will discuss the penalties that apply to non-filers and non-payers, and when waivers may apply to those penalties.

By the end of the program, participants will have a practical understanding, through accurate, current, and effectively designed communications, of how non-filers enter the collection process, the tools IRS uses in collecting unpaid taxes, and the right of individuals to appeal collection decisions.
