NYSSEA Presents Robert Kerr, EA - Math Error Authority and Taxpayer Rights: a survey - a CE Webinar Event - 2 CE hours

IRS’ authority to correct taxpayers’ math errors has a nearly 100-year history. While math hasn’t changed much in the last century, IRS’ authority for changes under MEA (Math Error Authority) has changed dramatically—and in ways that affect taxpayer rights. In this 2 CE overview, participants will learn about MEA origins, expansion over time, and the importance of a timely response to IRS math error notices. Participants will also become familiar with problems associated with MEA creep over time, including encroachment on taxpayer rights, which will also be outlined broadly.


Robert Kerr, EA

Bob Kerr has spent his entire three-decade career in tax administration. During a dozen years at IRS, he held a variety of positions both in the agency’s Washington, DC headquarters and in its Chicago, IL district office. While in the Service’s artificial intelligence labs, he led two nationwide electronic filing pilot programs and he counts among his accomplishments the first internet-filed income tax returns and the creation of the accompanying Form 8453-OL.

He also served in a professional staff position on the U.S. Senate Finance Committee, where he helped Senator Grassley provide IRS oversight on issues ranging from private debt collection to relocation expenses. His experience with the National Association of Enrolled Agents and H&R Block provides him a unique tax professional perspective. He served as NAEA’s chief advocate for more than a decade, acted as primary spokesman to both tax and general media, founded its political action committee, and subsequently served as the association’s head of office.

Bob is an enrolled agent who recently launched his own firm, Kerr Consulting LLC, to bring to the table significant public sector, trade association, and private sector experience in tax administration, tax policy, and public policy. The firm allows him to serve as a thought partner to his individual clients while also pursuing a long-held interest in public speaking. To that end, he welcomes invitations to speak and/or provide CE to tax professionals.

Bob holds a BA degree in finance from Mount Union College and an MBA from Case Western Reserve University, both of which are in his home state of Ohio. Interested tax professionals may follow him on Twitter (@BSG_BobKerr).
