On September 21, 2015, the NYCLA hosted a CLE program on Tax Practice and Procedure. Most non-tax attorneys shudder at the thought of their clients being the subject of a tax audit or a collection procedure. Yet there are many basic issues, recordkeeping steps and business practices all attorneys should familiarize themselves with when advising clients. In addition, knowing a taxpayer’s basic rights and the audit procedure, including the significance of the initial audit letter, how to respond and how to defend, will help ease the process for your clients, as well as alert them to when hiring a tax professional is needed.
The panel of experts covered the basics of the tax audit – whether it be from the IRS or NYS – as well as the collection process in this program designed especially for the non-tax attorney.
Program Co-sponsor: NYCLA’s Taxation Committee
Faculty: Alan Pearlman, Esq., Chair NYCLA’s Taxation Committee; Michael Sardar, Kostelanetz & Fink, LLP; Jack Trachtenberg, ReedSmth
