Tax collection issues can be as simple as responding to a bill or as complicated as a bankruptcy reorganization. To represent a client in a tax collection matter, a CPA should have a fundamental understanding of tax collection laws and practices.

It is critical to understand the available options for resolving tax collection cases and the procedures available for reaching those resolutions. This course will analyze applicable laws, procedures and potential resolutions, including the law of tax liens and levies and procedures available for resolving a tax collection matter. We will cover alternative resolutions, including installment agreements, offers in compromise and bankruptcy in detail.
