Why Attend?

  • Get an overview of individual and entity-level taxes and their interactions for advising clients on business formation and operations
  • Learn the potential tax impact of settlements and judgments including key terms and conditions that should be included, or excluded, from settlement agreements and tax-reporting obligations
  • Review common tax questions posed by clients to transactional attorneys on business operations, shareholder loans, and purchase/sale agreements
  • Develop vital strategies for representing clients in IRS tax audits, appeals, and collections matters, and upon receipt of an IRS summons or subpoena

Federal tax issues affect almost every decision facing clients, whether individuals or businesses. It does not matter at what stage you have been engaged (setting up a business, purchasing/selling raw materials or inventory, or hiring/terminating employees); taxes impact the advice you are being asked to give. If your practice focus is more litigation-based, you need to be aware that potential settlements and judgments will have a tax impact on your clients. It is always better to factor taxes into your advice and strategy before starting settlement negotiations and especially before presenting your case to a judge or jury. At this seminar, we introduce attorneys to a tax-basics presentation followed by practice-specific information so that attorneys can properly advise their clients on how taxes factor into decisions.

The purpose of this seminar is three-fold: (i) to provide non-tax practitioners a tax bootcamp of the basic tax rules for individuals, businesses, and trusts and estates; (ii) to provide information for both transactional- and litigation-focused attorneys with tax issues specific to these types of practices; and (iii) to provide helpful tips and strategies for handling IRS tax audits, appeals, and collections matters.
