Christopher M. Ferguson moderated a panel titled "Following the Money: The Ins and Outs of Construction Industry Audits and Investigations" at the NYU SCPS 11th Annual Tax Controversy Forum

Construction projects often involve large amounts of money changing hands among a large number of people creating a situation that is ripe for mistakes and even fraud. In response, the government has developed investigative technics specifically for uncovering tax non-compliance in the construction industry. This panel reviewed how the government approaches audits and investigations in the construction industry and practical tips for representing taxpayers who are faced with having to explain where their money came from and where it went.
