Course Description

Many changes have taken place for business professionals due to COVID-19. Most workplaces have transitioned to fully remote operations, and there is an abundance of new rules and regulations to navigate through. In these difficult times, accounting and tax professionals must especially stay up to date on ethical practices and new quality control procedures.

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 Free Ethics Webinar covers the basics of IRS Office Professional Responsibility, how it functions, and interacts with tax practitioners.

In this online ethics webinar, you will learn the ins and outs of Circular 230. Circular 230 is where tax practitioners have their main source of ethics. Oftentimes, practitioners can inadvertently go astray of these rules. This webinar will look at real-life examples of practitioners who violated Circular 230.

Key topics covered in this online Free Ethics CPE webinar are as follows:

Fantastic Teacher! Great coverage of the material. Presenter gave good suggestions for best practices within the firms to stay in compliance. Made what can be a dry topic interesting with the actual examples of real life cases.

This was a great training on ethics. Included some different perspectives that I didn't expect.I learned far more in this webinar than any other Ethics course I've ever taken. I very much enjoyed the presentation and how interesting the whole topic of Ethics is in formulating rules, etc.
