When the IRS or the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance knocks on the taxpayer's door, practitioners need to recognize the issues and know the options available to their clients.


Objectives: This presentation will address IRS and New York State collection techniques and possible resolutions for taxpayers with outstanding liabilities, including nonfilers.


The presentation will discuss:

  • Liens and levies
  • Wage garnishments and income executions

  • Trust Fund Recovery Penalties
  • New York State Voluntary Disclosure
