Throughout 2015, the IRS made clear that employment tax enforcement is a current priority. This is something we’ve discussed in past posts, as well heard first hand from IRS agents and officials at conferences and other venues.
Against this backdrop, we’re pleased to announce that we’ll hold The Employment Tax Forum on February 25, 2016 here in our Philadelphia Office. The goal is to provide tax professionals – including accountants, return preparers, auditors and attorneys – with an overview of federal employment tax issues, including worker classification, and an update on related federal civil and criminal enforcement initiatives. Free CPE and CLE will also be offered.
The day begins with breakfast, then breaks into two panel sessions that will allow attendees to hear from current and former IRS officials, as well as experienced practitioners. In addition to our Tax Controversy Group, they include:
- James Smith, Small Business/Self-Employed (SB/SE) Division Collection Manager, Internal Revenue Service
- David Dysert, Executive Director, Ernst & Young
- David Gannaway, Principal, O’Conner Davies, LLP, and former IRS criminal investigation special agent
