I am happy to announce that I will be one of the featured speakers at the 2015 Annual Meeting of the California Tax Bar Conference that is being held from November 4th through November 6th at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines in San Diego.

The International Tax Audit & Appeals Including Statute of Limitations in the International Context session will teach tax professionals about the IRS' current focus on international tax audits and about the specialized  teams and revenue agents being trained in tax audits with international connections. The panel will discuss how the statute of  limitations effect your clients, including:

  1. Overview the general statute of limitations rules and exceptions
  2. Compare Title 26 to Title 31
  3. Discuss the unlimited statute of limitations for the failure to file tax forms created under the 2010 HIRE Act
  4. Learn the foreign corporation and nonresident alien consequences for not filing U.S. tax returns
  5. Strategize requests for abatement of penalties resulting from the failure to file Forms 5471 and 5472
I will be speaking on November 6th from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. PT. Please come join me at this informative session. Please click on the link below for more registration information. I hope to see all of you there!
