Event Synopsis:
Tax-related penalties have evidently increased over the past years. The Internal Revenue System (IRS) has asserted increased evasion for both civil and criminal taxes, which gives taxpayers a glimpse of what lies ahead in terms of tax penalties in the coming years. Although the civil and criminal taxes are different in a theoretical way, the IRS can invoke both sanctions in a single tax evasion case, making it more important for taxpayers to know the basic practical details of penalty assessments.

Listen as a panel of distinguished tax professionals organized by The Knowledge Group provide the audience with an overview of the recent tax penalties involving civil and criminal taxes. Speakers will also offer helpful insights on how to avoid the risks of penalty assessment and protect themselves from such perils.

In a live webcast, the speakers will discuss:

Civil and Criminal Tax – Overview
The Relationship Between Civil and Criminal Tax Fraud
Nuts and Bolts of Civil and Criminal Tax Penalties
The Perils of Civil and Criminal Tax Penalties
Understanding Penalty Assessments
Recent Statistics
Best Practices
