Case Resolution Program
The Nationwide Tax Forums offer tax professionals with unresolved client cases the opportunity to meet face-to-face with IRS representatives in the Case Resolution Program.

A forum attendee must bring a valid power of attorney for any case he or she wishes to work with the IRS. Tax businesses should bring only one client case per forum to the Case Resolution Program.
The forums also feature a two-day expo with tax and financial businesses offering products, services and expertise designed with the tax professional in mind. In a survey of 2016 attendees, the forums received an overall 97 percent satisfaction rate. Presentations from the 2016 Tax Forums are available on IRS.gov.
