    Update: IRS Criminal Investigation. An update on current developments and hot topics from the perspective of top officials at the Internal Revenue Service and Department of Justice.

    Moderator:
    Niles Elber, Caplin & Drysdale, Chtd.
    Speaker:
    Don Fort, Criminal Investigation, Internal Revenue Service, Washington, DC

    1:30 PM - 2:00 PM
    Update: Tax Division, U.S. Department of Justice.

    Moderator:
    Kathy Keneally, Jones Day, New York, NY (Moderator)
    Speaker:
    Richard E. Zuckerman, Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General, Tax Division, U.S. Department of Justice, Washington, DC

    2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
    When You Need to Disclose More Than Just a Tax Crime. Under the IRS voluntary disclosure practice, in exchange for a timely, accurate, and complete disclosure and full cooperation during the associated audit, the IRS will not refer the taxpayers to the U.S. Department of Justice for criminal investigation and prosecution. But what if your client committed non-tax offenses that don’t require a referral from the IRS? What is the risk that the IRS will share the information with another federal agency, who may choose to prosecute? Will the voluntary disclosure protect a taxpayer from prosecution for hiring or harboring undocumented workers, failing to file Forms 8300, or other non-tax criminal conduct? Panelists will review frequent dilemmas faced when a client engages in criminal conduct outside of the Internal Revenue Code, options available to address these issues, how the IRS will treat, and whether it will disseminate, such information received through a voluntary disclosure, and best practices in these cases.

    Panelists:
    Michelle F. Schwerin, Capes Sokol, St. Louis, MO (Moderator)
    D. Richard (Rick) Goss, Acting Director, International Operations, Criminal Investigation, Internal Revenue Service
    Carolyn A. Schenck, Assistant Division Counsel (International), Small Business/Self-Employed Division, Office of Chief Counsel, Internal Revenue Service
    Sandra Brown, Hochman Salkin Toscher & Perez PC, Beverly Hills, CA
    Grace E. Albinson, Trial Attorney, Tax Division, U.S. Department of Justice

    3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
    Tax Shelters - The Current Generation. The IRS continues to combat abusive tax shelters and transactions, often shutting down one group of shelters only to have others surface using different theories and schemes to avoid or evade tax due and owing. This panel will address the range of abusive domestic tax shelters that are presenting current and emerging tax enforcement challenges and how today’s shelters compare to the flood of corporate tax shelters two decades ago. The panelists will discuss current promotions and the nature and impact of the government’s response, including the assessment and deterrent effect of civil penalties, referrals of advisors to the Office of Professional Responsibility, and criminal investigations and prosecutions.

    Panelists:
    Miriam Fisher, Latham & Watkins (Moderator)
    Tom Cullinan, Counselor to the Commissioner and to Chief Counsel, Internal Revenue Service
    Sharyn Fisk, Director, Office of Professional Responsibility
    David A. Hubbert, Deputy Assistance Attorney General (Civil Matters), Tax Division, U.S. Department of Justice
    Brendan O’Dell, Coordinator, Promoter Investigations Coordinator, Office of the Deputy Commissioner, Services and Enforcement, Internal Revenue Service

    MCLE Information

    The ABA will seek 3.0 CLE credit hours in 60-minute-hour states, and 3.6 CLE credit hours in 50-minute states. Credit hours are estimated and are subject to each state’s approval and credit rounding rules.

    CPE Information

    The American Bar Association is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors for Group Live programs (live in-person). State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, many State boards of accountancy are providing flexibility in the instructional delivery method and allowing for Group Live approved providers to issue credits for Group Live Internet Based vended programs. Kansas does not allow for this flexibility, and waiver requests are pending with Iowa, New York, and North Dakota. All other State boards of accountancy have noted their flexibility. Complaints regarding registered sponsors may be submitted to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors through its website: www. learningmarket.org. Recommended CPE Credits and Fields of Study: Program attendees can earn up to 3.0 CPE credits in Tax. There are no prerequisites.
