SANDRA BROWN to Speak at Upcoming ABA Virtual 2020 May Tax Meeting

We are pleased to announce that Sandra Brown will be speaking at the ABA Virtual 2020 May Meeting –When You Need to Disclose More Than Just a Tax Crime — on Tuesday July 14th at 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. (EST).

Under the IRS voluntary disclosure practice, in exchange for a timely, accurate, and complete disclosure and full cooperation during the associated audit, the IRS will not refer the taxpayers to the U.S. Department of Justice for criminal investigation and prosecution. But what if your client committed non-tax offenses that don’t require a referral from the IRS? What is the risk that the IRS will share the information with another federal agency, who may choose to prosecute? Will the voluntary disclosure protect a taxpayer from prosecution for hiring or harboring undocumented workers, failing to file Forms 8300, or other non-tax criminal conduct? Panelists will review frequent dilemmas faced when a client engages in criminal conduct outside of the Internal Revenue Code, options available to address these issues, how the IRS will treat, and whether it will disseminate, such information received through a voluntary disclosure, and best practices in these cases.
