“The Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Justice have increased criminal enforcement of tax laws and have implemented new programs to prosecute tax fraud,” said Theodore Margolis, a member of Norris McLaughlin & Marcus. “This seminar, directed at accountants, tax preparers and professionals in the tax field, will aggressively explore the practical and legal aspects of protecting against criminal tax liability.”
The program will provide a quick, focused education to the tax professional as to the critical issues that can protect both the professional and their clients from criminal prosecution. The speakers will not only focus on the tax fraud issues highly targeted by the government, but also raise areas likely to be of concern in the future. The panel consists of representatives from both the government and the defense side of tax prosecution, including:
