To meet its revenue goals, it is essential for a government to have a strong tax department that is capable of conducting audits and investigations to identify and recover unpaid taxes. Unfortunately, there are always some individuals and organizations that are unwilling to pay the taxes they owe and may attempt to underpay or evade their tax obligations. By having a robust tax department in place, a government can ensure that it can effectively enforce its tax laws and collect the revenues it needs to fund its operations and services. This course is designed for participants to understand how to conduct an effective tax audit and investigation.
