The COVID-19 crises, as well as significant tax law changes introduced by the CARES Act, have left many ongoing controversies in flux. Now that IRS offices are beginning to open again, dormant controversies are being activated, and it is critical that taxpayers manage and address such controversies while navigating new IRS guidance and procedural rules. Additionally, because the CARES Act resulted in significant tax law changes, the new law may affect how current controversies are evaluated, and in some cases, resolved. Our program will offer insight and practice tips for addressing ongoing controversy matters, steering clear of technical challenges, and taking advantage of procedural opportunities.

Learning Objectives

  • Provide insight regarding what to expect with current and upcoming controversy matters in light of the pandemic as well as recent CARES Act tax law changes.
  • Offer insight regarding how to manage and resolve current controversy matters utilizing procedural guidance implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Evaluate expected CARES Act controversy and steps that can be taken currently to minimize future controversy.
