The Actual Experience of Audit and Revocation by the IRS - One Credit Counseling Agency Shares it All!

The American Association of Debt Management Organizations (AADMO), the largest trade association for the credit counseling industry, will feature a program of the actual experience of one agency going through the IRS audit and revocation process at the AADMO Fall Conference in Austin, TX on October 22 and 23, 2007.

According to Mark Guimond, Executive Director of the AADMO, "We have one session that no one in credit counseling should miss - If you want to know the truth about the audit and revocation experience, this is the only opportunity to hear first hand from one of the front line veterans. You will learn directly from the top executive of a credit counseling agency that had its 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status revoked by the IRS what actually transpired and the identified problem areas that led to revocation."

"This is an essential program if you've ever wondered what it's like to receive an IRS examination notice, have an IRS document request, go through an actual audit, face revocation or go through the entire appeal process", said Guimond.

Would you like to know what types of documents and records the IRS is looking at? Would you like to know what IRS field examiners are asking for? Would you like to know the process and duration of an appeal? If you said yes to any of these questions, the AADMO Fall Conference is the only place to find the answers", added Guimond.
