IRS Announces 2nd in Series of Webinars on LB&I Compliance Campaigns
The IRS announced today that its Large Business and International (LB&I) Division will participate in the 2nd in a series of webinars on March 28 to provide tax practitioners with additional information about how its new compliance campaigns will operate.
EY (Ernst & Young LLP) will host this webinar, which is scheduled for Tuesday, March 28, at 1 p.m. EDT. This one-hour webinar will further discuss the campaign process, how campaigns are being implemented and how they will impact taxpayers.
LB&I's Tina Meaux, assistant deputy commissioner, Compliance Integration; and Kathy Robbins, director of the Enterprise Activities Practice Area, will conduct this webinar. Those interested in attending the March 28 webinar can register via this link to EY.
Dates and times for additional webinars, in which IRS executives, in collaboration with various stakeholders, will discuss more fully the 13 compliance campaigns launched on Jan. 31, 2017, will be announced in the weeks ahead.
In announcing the initial rollout of 13 compliance campaigns in January, IRS officials said the launch was the culmination of an extensive effort to redefine compliance work and create greater transparency between the IRS and LB&I’s taxpayer segment. LB&I leaders plan to continue discussions with the tax professional community to best meet the needs of the taxpayers and tax administration.
LB&I's move toward issue-based examinations and a campaign process allows the division to decide which tax issues that present risk require a response while maintaining flexibility on the best steps to achieve compliance.
