The IRS plans to commence hundreds of examinations of high-income individuals and, in many instances, their related business entities. What are the key aspects of (and changes to) the IRS’s approach to examining high-income taxpayers and how could these examinations affect taxpayers and their representatives? We’ll discuss:
- The current state of the IRS approach to conducting high-income examinations.
- The resources and strategy the IRS will employ for this initiative.
