IRS will try to sell e-filing to tax professionals

Tax professionals can hear first hand from their colleagues and e-mail questions to the Internal Revenue Service about the benefits of IRS e-file during a free November 18 Webinar, “E-file: Building the Case, A Panel Discussion with Tax Professionals.”

The hour-long program, hosted by the IRS, will air three times on Nov. 18. Tax professionals must register by November 17 for one of three session times: 10 a.m., 1 p.m. or 4 p.m. EST.

The Webinar is part of an ongoing IRS effort to encourage tax preparers to use e-file for all their clients’ tax return transmissions.

John Myett, an IRS subject matter expert in electronic interactions, will discuss what the IRS is doing to improve the e-filing experience for tax professionals and their clients.

A panel comprising representatives from national practitioner organizations will respond to questions. Kim Lawson, an IRS analyst, will moderate the event.

Participants include:

  • James Adelman, National Association of Enrolled Agents
  • Larry Gray, National Association of Tax Professionals
  • Joe Marchbein, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants

The IRS will collect e-mailed questions from viewers who submit them during each November 18 show and will post the consolidated questions and answers to IRS.gov at a later date. The program’s archived version will also be posted to the IRS Web site. Certificates of Completion are available to those who need them for Continuing Professional Education credit.
