BNA Webinar:
Eggshell Audits - Keeping Your Client Out of Jail

The Brager Tax Law Group is offering three free tickets and 25% off to all other interested registrants for Bloomberg's webinar "Eggshell Audits- Keeping Your Client Out of Jail." The webinar will cover:

  1. Telltale signs if the revenue agent is considering referring a civil case to the Criminal Investigation Division.
  2. Techniques the practitioner can use to minimize the risk if a civil audit will turn criminal.
  3. What to do about the filing of current tax returns during an eggshell audit.

An eggshell audit is a civil tax audit in which the taxpayer has filed a false tax return. If the falsity comes to light then there is possibility that the IRS can refer the case for criminal investigation, and ultimately criminal prosecution. Because of the sensitivity of the issues and the potential for disastrous results, anyone involved in the audit must walk on eggshells. Hence the term "eggshell audit."

The webinar is on Wednesday, May 6, 2014 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. PT. Dennis Brager will be one of the featured panelists at this event. Tune in to learn more about eggshell audits and the potential consequences that come along with this type of audit.
