About This Program

What are the implications of the government shut down on the IRS’s ability to audit business valuation returns in 2019? What steps should you take if your appraisal is audited by the IRS?

Attendees will come away with recommendations on how to work with the IRS given the ramifications of the government shut down. And, knowing the emotional impact of the government shut down, congressional expectations, and morale at the IRS, attendees will be coached on how to work with the IRS should their business valuation appraisal be audited. In addition, Gregory will also provide a best practice proactive example so that appriaisers can learn the appropriate actions.
