Product description

Guide to all stages of a tax examination, investigation, litigation and prosecution -- civil or criminal -- including coverage of:

•  the recent repeal of TEFRA partnership entity-level audit rules; this reform will have a substantial impact on IRS audits of partnerships and partners.

•  an analysis of IRC § 7345, which authorizes the Secretary of State to revoke the passport of a U.S. citizen who, as certified by the IRS Commissioner, owes a seriously delinquent tax debt.

•  the latest on the quickly developing law as it relates to the search and seizure of electronic evidence from the many electronic devices used in everyday life.

•  the DOJ’s new pilot program that allows a company to receive credit for reporting and remediating its own violations under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

•  the latest developments in the DOJ’s ongoing crusade against undeclared foreign bank accounts.

•  FinCEN’s new Beneficial Ownership Rules that will apply to domestic financial institutions requiring that they identify the beneficial owners of accounts held in the name of legal entities.

•  the effect of a criminal conviction on the statute of limitations for civil assessment and collection.

Volume 2 augments these discussions by providing a useful collection of valuable source material, including:

•  Sample jury charges;
