This material will discuss what to expect from an IRS examination and the options for resolving or disputing an IRS examination by working with the IRS Appeals Division or litigating a tax case in U.S. Tax Court or in refund litigation. We will also discuss how to make a voluntary disclosure to the IRS and the basics of an IRS criminal investigation.
