Nov 12, 2018 10:45am ‐ Nov 12, 2018 12:00pm


Nobody likes to pay more tax than necessary, but some taxpayers are more aggressive about avoiding taxes than others. When does aggressive tax planning cross the line into criminal tax evasion? What does the IRS look for when choosing criminal tax cases for prosecution? What should you do when you learn that a client has gone too far and broken the law? This panel will answer these and other questions so that you can protect your clients and yourself from becoming entangled in a criminal tax investigation.

You will learn to: 

  • Identify what makes a tax case criminal
  • Recognize how the IRS selects and investigates criminal tax cases
  • How to identify problem clients and how you can help them
  • How to protect yourself from becoming involved in a criminal tax investigation
