This course is designed to educate a practitioner how to effectively leverage the IRS Form 433F to illustrate a financial hardship to the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS’s main collection division, Automated Collections, uses this form extensively when determining the collectability of a taxpayer with past due tax balances. Often a taxpayer wants to resolve these back-tax issues, but the IRS default collection schemes are very rigid and unaffordable to a taxpayer that is experiencing or will experience a financial hardship. Establishing hardship resolutions with the IRS requires advocacy, negotiation, and substantiation. This course will educate a practitioner on the mechanics of the required forms and necessary substantiation to effectively illustrate financial hardship to the IRS’s largest collection division, Automated Collections.

Learning Objectives

  • Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
  • Recognize when a client’s financial circumstances justify a resolution that only partially pays IRS liability.
  • Identify which expenses must be accepted by the IRS, and which expenses may be deemed “conditional”.
  • Complete a Form 433-F using allowable state, local, and national standards to reduce the need for substantiation.
  • Propose an alternative to enforcement action, in the form of a Partial Pay Installment Agreement, by calling ACS.
  • Defend expenses that are not IRS standards, but disallowance would jeopardize the health and welfare of the family/taxpayer.

Note: If you can't attend live, that's okay: go ahead and register and you will automatically receive the recording when it is sent out.
