Arrive Early

Our seminars are very popular. Be sure to arrive early for choice seating at your seminar. The Fire Marshall will not allow standing in the seminar rooms or sitting on the floor! If your first choice is full, you may select from several other seminars held at that hour. Scanners will be ready for scanning 15 minutes before the session starts. Be sure the scanner is reading “Session Open” or you will have an invalid scan and you will not get credit.

Case Resolution

You can once again bring your toughest unresolved IRS case (one case per tax business) to the Case Resolution Program. IRS representatives with specialized expertise will be available by appointment only to meet one-on-one with tax professionals. If we can't resolve the case onsite or it needs more research, we'll assign it to the appropriate IRS unit for follow-up. A signed original or copy of your Power of Attorney (Form 2848), authorizing disclosure of confidential tax information, is required and must be presented when scheduling an appointment. Only the practitioner(s) listed on the POA will be allowed in the Case Resolution Room. For an appointment, visit the Case Resolution table on Monday before the Forum begins, from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm, or go directly to the Case Resolution Room during the three-day event. To expedite scheduling, bring your Form 2848 and a completed Nationwide Tax Forum Case Data Sheet with you. The Case Resolution Program can help you resolve one client's toughest tax case. The program is for client cases only. We cannot assist you with any personal tax case or any case in which you have a vested interest. If you have an issue with a case of this nature, please contact the IRS or the Taxpayer Advocate Service directly.
