Next week is the ABA Tax Section 2019 May Meeting in Washington, D.C. (May 9-11). I talk about some highlights and panels I might attend. IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig will be speaking twice, basically at the beginning and end of the conference (Tax Bridge to Practice and the plenary luncheon). I also detail the Collection Due Process panel I will be on with Carolyn Lee (Morgan, Lewis and Brockius of San Francisco) moderating and panelists Tax Court Judge David Gustafson, Keith Fogg of Harvard Law School, Mitch Hyman of IRS Chief Counsel, Professor Erin Stearns from the University of Denver LITC, and me (William Schmidt, Kansas Legal Services LITC). We hope it is an innovative panel, bringing discussion of possible solutions to help taxpayers through the process. It would be wonderful if the panel leads to further discussion that brings systemic change in CDP for the better.
The next episode will be posted following the conference.
