Withers Bergman shines light on ‘Eggshell Audits’ in Greenwich

The international law firm Withers Bergman will host breakfast seminars in New York and Connecticut this week examining the complex process of tax examinations known as “eggshell audits.”

Tax and financial advisors are invited to join the firm between on Tuesday in New York, Wednesday in New Haven and Thursday in Greenwich.

Eggshell audits are examinations of tax filings that have underlying “cracks,” namely the existence of serious civil and criminal tax issues. The seminar will use a case study to explore the issues that can arise in these examinations and will help advisors protect their clients before and after they file their returns.

“Being selected for a tax audit can be a harrowing experience for taxpayers and the tax professionals who advise them,” said David Moise, a partner in the New York Office of Withers Bergman, said. “This seminar will help advisors learn to spot and repair cracks in their clients’ returns.”

Withers Bergman attorneys will address a range of issues, including how foreign interests alter the audit process, how to protect client privacy, the extent to which someone should cooperate in an audit and the appropriate time to bring in a lawyer. The firm will also discuss how to manage surprise audits from jurisdictions in which an individual is unaware he or she should be filing.

The Greenwich seminar will be held on Thursday, June 5, from 8:30 to 10 a.m. at the Delamar Harbor Hotel, 500 Steamboat Road. Breakfast will be served at the event.

Interested parties are asked to RSVP by contacting [email protected] or 212-848-9862.
