IRS Settlement Days are a process where IRS Counsel selects cases that would potentially be ripe for settlement or would benefit from a conference. These Settlement Days are often in anticipation of upcoming Tax Court trial sessions. They work with pro bono attorneys, often from Low Income Taxpayer Clinics, that act as disinterested third parties to advise unrepresented petitioners regarding the tax or legal procedural issues they are facing.
This year, Settlement Days are happening virtually due to the pandemic. Kansas City Counsel had scheduled Virtual Settlement Days for August 26 through 29. I give a report on how things went, provide some tips and describe different issues the taxpayers faced.
