The Pre-Filing Agreement Program (PFA) was designed as a component of the Large Business and International Division's issue management strategy. Briefly, the program encourages taxpayers to request consideration of an issue before the tax return is filed thus, resolving potential disputes and controversy earlier in the examination process. The program’s effect is to reduce the cost and burden associated with the post-filing examination, provide a desired level of certainty regarding a transaction, and to make better use of taxpayer and IRS resources. Below are materials that further describe the PFA process, what is required and information concerning the results achieved. Revenue Procedure 2016-30 superseded Revenue Procedure 2009-14.
