Course Description

Ethical issues for tax practitioners typically arise from a conflict among the duties owed to the client, to the system, and to yourself. When conflicts arise, it is important to understand what standards will be used to judge your conduct. This program will review Circular 230, and selected tax penalties, and discuss specific situations, both in the context of tax planning and return preparation. Currently, the IRS only requires practitioners who represent taxpayers before the IRS to follow Circular 230 due to the Loving case. Even though tax representation creates a jurisdiction hook, tax representatives can still run afoul for tax preparation issues under Circular 230. The session covers the basics of IRS Office Professional Responsibility, how it functions, and interacts with tax practitioners. We will also cover, jurisdictional issues of who is subject to Circular 230 and the sanction power of OPR. We will also cover what to do in a situation where OPR reaches out to you as a practitioner for possible violations of Circular 230.

This Ethics webinar will help tax professionals understand the rules relating to tax practice and preparation. We will cover Circular 230, the rules relating to PTINs and who needs them, and discuss sticky ethical situations and how to handle them.

I thoroughly enjoyed the ethics application using real life case studies! It helps put things into perspective as to how easily people can slip into unethical behavior. A great webinar, impressive speaker, interesting subject, and engaging delivery method. myCPE 1 Credit = 1 meal initiative helps us in becoming ethically and morally responsible.

Great Webinar and also very interesting take on an idea I think many people have tried to address over the years but often I kind of tuned out because I’ve heard it before or some variation of it. Thank You myCPE
