Form2848 is a powerful tool that can allow you to represent your client. Mostly. But all IRS Agents are not created equal and while there seems to be some shared philosophy, it can take many phone calls to figure out what is more likely to get you what you need! I will discuss setting up and using the IRS E-ServicesSecure Mailbox and the Transcript Delivery Service. What mistakes or omissions in 2848 will leave you frustrated?

If you prepared your client’s tax return and were granted 3rd party authorization, you could call the IRS and probably resolve most issues without having a power of attorney on file. Times have changed. With each year, it seems like it is harder and harder to get the information needed to help your client resolves issues or just access their information. Faxing (once the primary means of communication between tax professionals and the IRS) is on its way out. E-Services Secure Mailbox is in.

Join this session by expert speaker Mark Bliss where he will explain the differences between 2848 for an individual and a business entity.
