Congress Xstream Features Special Live IRS Presentation

BY: Alice P. Jacobsohn, Esq. | 05/28/20

Two decision makers from the IRS will present a special session at APA’s Congress Xstream on June 2, from 2:30-3:30 p.m. “Learning From the Top” features Sunita Lough, Esq., Deputy Commissioner for Services and Enforcement, and Janine Cook, Esq., currently the Acting Associate Chief Counsel as well as the Deputy Associate Chief Counsel in the Office of the Associate Chief Counsel.

While payroll professionals interact with many federal agencies, the agency that APA works with the most is the IRS. Through APA’s partnership, payroll professionals have influenced the development of forms and instructions, shared information on identity theft tax fraud, and disseminated information provided to us by the IRS.

The COVID-19 relief measures with employment tax requirements are complicated for both the IRS and payroll departments. Our IRS presenters will provide details on paid sick leave credits, employee retention credits, deferrals of deposits and payments of employer payroll taxes, and more. Other payroll-related topics also will be explained.

Deputy Commissioner Lough provides leadership to the four taxpayer-focused IRS operating divisions: Wage and Investment, Large Business and International, Small Business/Self Employed, and Tax Exempt and Government Entities. She also oversees the IRS’s Criminal Investigation Division, Office of Professional Responsibility,

Online Services, Return Preparer Office, and Whistleblower Office.

Deputy Associate Chief Counsel Cook leads five branches in the Exempt Organization and Employment Tax areas of the IRS’s Associate Chief Counsel’s Office, for which she supervises approximately 50 professionals.

Register today for Congress Xstream to attend this special presentation from IRS executives and much more.
