July Tax Talk will address retirement plan pitfalls

The Internal Revenue Service's Tax Talk Today program returns on Tuesday, July 8, 2008 at 2 p.m. with a Web cast on Retirement Plan Pitfalls.

Few issues are as important to the owner of a business and its employees as the proper administration of retirement plans. Ensuring that the retirement plan is in good running order keeps the promise made in setting up the plan.

Attend this program to learn how to use the IRS Fix-It Guides to identify and correct frequently encountered errors the IRS sees in retirement plans. These correction programs help retirement plans operate within the law and protect participant benefits. And they provide real incentives to identify and correct mistakes sooner rather than later. In addition, the IRS will provide tips on how these mistakes can be avoided in the future.

Moderated by Les Witmer, the show's panel of experts includes Avaneesh Bhagat, IRS, Program Coordinator, Employee Plans Voluntary Compliance; Dan Morgan, Partner Dickstein Shapiro, LLP; Thomas G. Schendt, Partner, Alston & Bird LLP; and Monika Templeman, IRS, Director, Employee Plans Examination.

Tax Talk Today is a Web cast aimed at educating tax and payroll professionals on the most current and complex tax issues. Tax professionals are encouraged to watch and submit questions.

Viewers can register online to access the Web cast at no charge. Tax professionals in need of continuing education credits are eligible to receive one CPE credit by viewing the May 13 Web cast.

Archived shows are available on the site also.
