1 To Promote the Professionalism and the Growth of Our Members America s tax experts CSEA Inland Empire Chapter May 2015 IRS Strategies on Identity Theft and Online Resources by KRISTEN DEAZELEY, IRS STAKEHOLDER LIAISON Gloria J Williams, EA, Program Chair Ms. Kristen Deazeley, Stakeholder Liaison with the Internal Revenue Service s Small Business Self-Employed Division will present Identity Theft and Online Resources for our May 13th dinner meeting. Her presentation will discuss the IRS strategy to prevent identity theft, including prevention, detection and victim assistance. The discussion will cover tagging victim accounts, applying special filters before processing, and partnering with local law enforcement. Business related identity theft will be discussed along with what tax practitioners should know to assist their clients. Online resources will outline the newest online resources on IRS.gov that are available to taxpayers and practitioners. These will include the Online Payment Agreement (OPA); OIC Pre-Qualifier Tool; Direct Pay; and Get Transcript. About the Speaker: Kristen joined the IRS in 2004 as a Revenue Agent where she performed examinations of sole proprietorships, C Corporations and flow through entities. She has held acting assignments as a Field Examination group manager, Taxpayer Advocate Group Manager and performed details with National Research Program. She holds a B.A. with concentrations in both Accounting and Communication. PRESIDENT S MESSAGE Welcome back! I am glad tax season is over and can now get back to a normal schedule. I hope everyone had a great tax season and ACA did not trip you up. I have to say that I think I was over prepared for ACA as I had only about a dozen clients that did not have health insurance. Out of those clients the largest penalty I had was $288 but I did have two clients who had to pay back their premium assistance because they did not inform Covered California when their income has changed. With only two more meetings left in my charge I can t believe that my time as President of the Chapter is almost done. As we finish out our fiscal year we will be looking for the new group of leaders to launch us into the future and keep the Chapter going strong. Ronald Uehle, EA, Inland Empire Chapter President Just a reminder, that in just about a year our Chapter will be hosting the Annual Meeting of the California Society of Enrolled Agents and we will need everyone s help in making it the best annual meeting ever. This month s meeting topic is one that I think everyone came across this tax season as I know I did several times. Identity theft and filing tax returns is a big problem and it keeps getter bigger. With all the technology it seems to be easier to steal a person s identification. We will find out how the IRS is dealing with this and what we can do to help out clients. Look forward to seeing everyone at the meeting and to be able to share our war stories from this latest tax season.

IRSAC members submit a report to the IRS Commissioner annually at a public meeting in the fall. IRSAC is comprised of up to 35 members, who are appointed to three-year terms by the Commissioner. Applications are currently being accepted for approximately seven appointments that will begin in January Nominations of qualified individuals may come from individuals or organizations. IRSAC members are drawn from substantially diverse backgrounds.

Questions about the application process can be sent to the following January 2015 CSEA Board of Directors Meeting I recently attended the January 2015 Board meeting. The Board had a full agenda. The board voted to cut back to 3 in person meetings a year. We will no longer have a May meeting in Reno starting with the next fiscal year. We have also decided to eliminate the Web Board meeting. The Leaders have decided that CSEA is going to model our Board of Directors meetings after NAEA. During the Membership Committee meeting we had a very robust discussion about what we could do to help our Chapter Members. I am the Vice Chair of the Membership Committee and I would like to know: Why you are a Member of CSEA? I would like to hear your story. I would like to know what the Membership Committee at the State level can do to help you. I would like to hear your answers to this question, pertaining to your practice, what keeps you up at night? As a Member of CSEA what do you expect our Society to do for you? Please think about these questions and share your answers with me. I would like to share your ideas at the State level. The easiest way to respond to these questions is to send me an gmail.com Can t wait to hear from you!

Bio for Vic Morel, EA Running for Board of Directors Member My name is Vic Morel, EA and I previously worked for the IRS for 34 plus years. I have an MS from C.U.N.Y. (Richmond College) and I am enrolled to practice before the IRS. I retired from IRS as an IRS Appeals Settlement Officer. Prior to working in Appeals, I was an IRS Collection Manager for 12 years. My experience has been in the following areas: IRS Appeals Tax Issues and IRS Collection Issues. In addition, I have had experience as an Offer-in-Compromise Specialist, Revenue Officer, IRS Instructor, and an Acting ACS Assistant Branch Chief in the old Kearney Mesa (San Diego) office. In private practice, my experience is primarily as a Tax Resolution Specialist is in the areas of Trust Fund Recovery Penalty investigations, Collection Due Process (CDP) hearings, Penalty Abatement Requests with Appeals considerations, Business & Personal Tax Resolution, Complex Installment Agreement negotiations, Tax Audit Consultations, and Complex Tax Account transcript analysis. More significantly, I was an Offer-in-Compromise (OIC) Specialist while working in the San Bernardino IRS Field Office. In the Office of IRS Appeals, I handled the appeals of Rejected Offer-in-Compromises (OIC). My representation experience includes Offer-in-Compromises, Payroll Tax Problems, Innocent Spouse issues, unfiled returns, Penalty Abatements, Audit representation, owed back taxes problems, Payment Plans, Identity Theft tax issues, Trust Fund Recovery Penalties (TFRP) defense, Wage & Bank levies releases, and Personal & Business Tax Resolution. I have testified in Tax Court & Federal District Court as an Expert Witness. Tax Court Reviews In T.C. Summary Opinion the sole issue for decision is whether petitioner (Suzanne Moore Bacon) received income in 2007 from cancellation of indebtedness (COI). Following the earthquake that occurred in Northridge, California, in mid-january of 1994, Ms. Bacon applied to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for disaster assistance funds to make repairs on a residence on Mayall Street in Northridge. At the time of her application she represented to FEMA that the Mayall Street property was her primary residence. Later, in January of 1994 Ms. Bacon received disaster assistance funds from FEMA totaling $3,450. FEMA subsequently determined that such property did not qualify as Ms. Bacon s primary residence. In October of 1994 FEMA notified Ms. Bacon of its determination and sought to recoup the disaster assistance funds. Ms. Bacon never disputed FEMA s determination, did not return any of the FEMA funds that she improperly received, nor did she respond to any of the eight letters and four voic messages left by FEMA between January, 1995 and September, 1997 seeking to collect the amount due. In October of 1997 FEMA referred this matter to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for judicial enforcement of its claims. The DOJ never commenced any suit or initiated any other action to recover the funds. The government s legal right to recover the funds expired on January 27, 2001, six years after the original default date. In February of 2008 FEMA mailed petitioner a Form 1099-C reporting a discharge of indebtedness of $6,297 for Ms. Bacon did not report this COI on her 2007 individual tax return and the IRS subsequently determined a deficiency of $1,012 for the unreported income. The question as to the year in which a taxpayer realizes COI income is one of fact to be determined on the basis of the evidence. A debt is deemed discharged the moment it becomes clear that such debt will never be repaid. Cozzi v. Commissioner, 88 T.C. at 445. There exist a number of identifiable events, any one of which could reasonably indicate that a debt has been discharged. Section P-1(b)(2)(i) and (iv), Income Tax Regs., provides an exclusive list of eight identifiable events under which debt is discharged for information reporting purposes. In finding for Ms. Bacon, the court reasoned that FEMA issued the 2007 Form C in error because Ms. Bacon s debt was in fact discharged by operation of law some six years earlier, on January 27, 2001.
