High Net Worth Audits

The Global High Wealth Group is an industry group created by the IRS LB&I in 2009. The purpose of the Global High Wealth Group (also known as the “Wealth Squad”) is to bring together an IRS team of specialist to coordinate the compliance, review, and, if necessary, conduct detailed examinations of complex returns of high wealth individuals and their related entities. The IRS is poised to start the examination of several hundred high net worth taxpayers this year and typically involve a pass-through business as the related entity, trusts tiered partnerships and retirement plans.
The program’s learning objectives include:

- Decipher “Wealth Squad” document requests and summonses
- More easily identify key strategies to minimize exposure from a “Wealth Squad” examination
