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 goes about collecting tax debts and the avenues available to taxpayers to appeal those collection efforts. The program will examine the organization and operation of the IRS Office of Appeals. Panelists will examine when taxpayers may seek a Collection Due Process hearing and how to go about requesting the hearing. The panel also will discuss the Collection Appeals Program, including when it is available to a taxpayer and how the taxpayer goes about appealing an IRS action under the program. Appealing other collection actions, such as rejected offers in compromise and denied penalty abatements, also will be explored.
