The Compliance Assurance Process (“CAP”) program allows taxpayers to work collaboratively with an IRS team to identify and resolve potential tax issues before tax returns are filed. The IRS in March 2011 announced that the CAP pilot program—established in 2005, to allow large corporate taxpayers working collaboratively with an IRS team to identify and resolve potential tax issues before filing the tax return—was being expanded and made permanent.
