It is important to understand the culture of the IRS, understand the role federal employees play in enforcing the tax system fairly and with integrity, and at the same time keep the work in perspective. Many people view the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a mail slot for accepting tax returns. Although the IRS may periodically need to contact them via the US postal system, the IRS is a complex organization of approximately 100,000 employees with very discernible features. React with patience. Realize that many controversies are in gray areas and that IRS employees typically see the most abusive cases, and for that reason IRS employees may start from a biased perspective. Maintain Integrity: Say only what you mean. Use your word and actions in the direction of truth and make them accurately reflect behaviors. Don t Take Things Personally: Others do not take actions because of you. What others do and say is a projection of how they see their world around them. When you focus on your interests and you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won t be the victim of needless suffering. Don t Make Assumptions: Find the courage to ask questions and to share what you really want. Clearly communicate with others to avoid misunderstandings or unnecessary drama. Always do Your Best: In all circumstances always do your best and you will avoid self-judgment, self-blame, and regret. By applying these four principles to risk management or alternative dispute resolution, the parties can reduce stress on themselves and increase the probability of success by focusing on the issues and not the people. Learn from my experiences, integrate your experiences, and take appropriate actions when working with the IRS.

About the Author:

I have drawn upon my experiences as a consultant, business valuation report reviewer, and mediator. I am offering my services to help clients navigate the systems of the IRS and to work as an advocate or mediator to try and resolve client issues with the IRS. I have significant mediation and issue resolution experience on many controversial factual/technical issues. My firm Michael Gregory Consulting LLC offers services to assist when clients ask for help with the IRS, for mediation services in a wide variety of settings including client government, client to business, and client internally with organizational concerns and interpersonal concerns. Interpersonal concerns vary from labor management, internal groups, and division to division concerns. In addition, with a background in strategic planning, the firm provides strategic planning services to help firms sort out where they are, where they want to be, and how to reach those objectives in a strategic manner. I am also helping clients expand and grow their businesses as well as helping clients as their wingman in negotiations involving buying or selling businesses. Michael Gregory, Chief Manager at Michael Gregory Consulting, LLC can be reached at 1945 Sharondale Avenue, Roseville, MN 55113 (office). Feedback on the book is always welcome, and service can be provided should you have the need.

Review:

As the former National Program Manager for the IRS Engineering and Valuation Program, I know the value of conflict resolution in the process of reaching reasonable and amicable agreements with the Internal Revenue Service. I know of no one with as much knowledge, experience, and skill in these areas as Mike Gregory. Mike's book, How to Work with the IRS: Strategies for Attorneys, Accountants & Appraisers, is the first and only of its kind that I am aware of. In his book, Mike explains how the IRS works, and how to employ time-tested conflict resolution techniques to the process of resolving differences and settling issues with the IRS. Mike and I worked together for eight years with a constant focus on improving the process of resolving audit issues between the IRS and taxpayers. Mike is a highly skilled mediator and identified ways to employ mediation and related techniques to the audit resolution process. Mike is well known as an expert in this field and his book explains how mediation and other techniques can be effectively used to improve the audit process and audit results. I highly recommend Mike's book to the widest range of stakeholders in the IRS audit process. --Howard A. Lewis, M.S., CBA, CVA, ABAR
