Thank you Steve! Our 2015 attendees agreed with your predictions!
After reading this year's agenda which focuses on Offers in Compromise, I think this could be the best Defense Conference ever. Offers are a big part of my practice and I have had tremendous success with them in the last few years. They are an incredibly valuable tool.
I can guarantee you the following:
1. No matter how much you think you know about Offers, Dan will dissect the IRM and present tools, tips, and tricks you do not know.
2. You will have more Offers accepted this year than last.
3. More accepted Offers means higher fees.
4. When the role-playing session is done, you will know how to solve the toughest OIC cases.
5. The brainstorming sessions are gold and not just limited to Offers. Bring your toughest case and it will be solved.
6. You will network with highly skilled tax professionals who do not think you are strange because you find that dealing with and fighting the IRS is interesting and fun.
7. You will leave the Conference pumped up and at the top of your game.
8. You will love the little desserts at the free buffet lunches.
If you have never been to the Defense Conference, this is the year.
CHANGE IN POLICY ON ENFORCEMENT OF STRUCTURING LAW Update on Abusive IRS and DOJ Practices
“Structuring” is the practice of depositing to or withdrawing from your own bank account sums of cash just under $10,000, specifically to avoid the federal information reporting requirements imposed upon banks under 31 U.S.C. §§5311-5325. It is a crime to structure a transaction in such a manner as to avoid the reporting requirements of the law. Thus, if you wish to move, say $11,000, but don’t wish to generate a currency transaction report, you might be tempted to move $5,000 in one transaction and $6,000 in another, or in other such increments. However, if you did so, you would be guilty of a federal crime.
