On October 5-6, 2018, Capes Sokol tax lawyers Laura E. Krebs Al-Shathir, Sara G. Neill, and Michelle F. Schwerin will present in front of the country’s leading tax attorneys and government officials at the 2018 American Bar Association Tax Section Joint Fall Meeting.

On Friday, Laura Al-Shathir will moderate a panel discussion on, “Important Developments in the Federal Income Taxation of S Corporations.”  The panel will discuss recent legislative, administrative and judicial developments relating to S corporations and their shareholders.

Later that day, Michelle Schwerin will present on, “The IRS’s Modern Use of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data in Tax Enforcement.”  The panel will discuss the fundamentals of the IRS’s big data analytics program, potential taxpayer privacy concerns, and what tax practitioners should be aware of when they represent clients in the future.

On Saturday, Michelle will provide an update on “Important Civil Developments” to the Tax Section’s Civil and Criminal Tax Penalties Committee.

Finally, Sara Neill will moderate a presentation focused on “Preparing Your Client (the Taxpayer) for the Government Interview.”  The panel of experienced tax litigators will discuss how they decide whether to let their clients talk and the strategy involved in those decisions. The panelists will offer practical tips for preparing your client for the government interview, handling the interview itself, and what to do if the interview goes “off the rails.”
