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 moderated 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, looks at how the IRS uses the mail to review many tax return issues. The program will examine when the IRS issues a Notice CP2000 to propose a change in tax, or a Notice 2501 to reconcile payer reported information and amounts reported on an individual's return. Panelists will discuss how taxpayers should respond to these notices and how to go about resolving disputes. The panel also will take up the matter of backup withholding and the actions payers should take after receiving a Notice CP2100. Panelists will discuss how information return filers may avoid problems with payee information before filing their information returns.
