October 23-24, 2017 Las Vegas Nevada Check back for registration details
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.
THE IRS AND THE FAIR DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES ACT What Rules Must the Agency Follow in Collecting Taxes?
As you read my article article on the IRS’s intended use of private collection agencies (PCAs), you saw the clear limitations within the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) on the use of unfair, abusive and misleading collection actions by PCAs. You might have asked yourself whether the IRS is bound by the terms of the FDCPA. After all, the IRS is the most powerful and ubiquitous collection agency on the planet.
Certainly one would think that the FDCPA’s reasonable and logical limitations on abusive practices should apply to the IRS. Well, they don’t. The IRS—indeed any federal agency collecting it own debts—is exempt from the provisions of FDCPA. Instead, those agencies are bound by their own applicable statutes and regulations.
