The Knowledge Congress Has Scheduled a Live Teleconference on Understanding IRC Section 199 & IRS Audits

New York, NY, June 08, 2008 --( The Knowledge Congress, the leading producer of regulatory focused teleconferences, has announced today that it has scheduled a live teleconference and webinar on Understanding IRC section 199 & IRS Audits. This two-hour event is scheduled on Monday, September 29, 2008 at 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EDT – New York).

Many companies have sought deductions under IRC Section 199. Recently, the IRS has been cracking down on these deductions. The impact of section 199 has become a top priority issue for many companies. New guidance and documentation procedures are now essential. The new rule can result in billions of dollars of savings for companies or reap significant penalties on companies not in compliance with the law. The Knowledge Congress has assembled a panel of distinguished professionals and key regulators to provide guidance to organizations that will be primarily affected by this section. The speakers will present their expert opinions in a two-hour teleconference and webinar.
