Tax Returns and Disclosure on Form 8275

Disclosure?  Don’t File an Uncertain Tax Return Without It

December 27, 2021
Noon PT, 1PM MT, 2PM CT, 3PM ET

2 hours, 2 CPE

Program Description:

With the plethora of continuous new legislation and related unanswered questions coming at us like a pack of defensive linemen, this tax season is (or at least seems to be) out of control. Approaches by tax software companies are “all over the board” moving targets. Clients want their tax returns now. If IRS scrutinizes a return (years later), they’ll have the benefit of hindsight. Much of the law is messy, messy, messy, messy.

What is a tax preparer to do? One approach is to disclose uncertainties to IRS on tax returns now. Yes, that’s right. Kiss and tell. Tell the adversary what you’re up to. All for the sake of seeing you and your client through to a better day.

Want to learn the ropes as to how? Take our new 2 hour webinar and learn:

– How the accuracy and preparer penalties for all new legislation is a “tough go” early on

– When disclosure may help (and, when it may not)

– If disclose, specifically how? Is Form 8275 necessary, or does white paper cut it?

– But, doesn’t disclosure get you audited?

– What does age-old Form 8082 have to do with all of this anyway?

– May you attach 8275 to an income tax return? Of course. What about an employment tax return (e.g., re: employee retention credit)? The answer might surprise you

–   How to fill out an 8275 (and make satisfactory disclosure)

–   How to use an 8275 as tax position penalty insurance

How and when to disclose? Let us knock it down to size for you.
