Course Description

A variety of rules place ethical constraints on the advice that tax practitioners can give clients. This CPE webinar covers statutory, regulatory and ethical standards governing those who practice in the tax field, emphasizing current issues in the application of the rules of professional conduct, Circular 230 (governing those admitted to practice before the Internal Revenue Service), and provisions of the Internal Revenue Code and the Treasury Regulations governing return preparers

This CPE/CE webinar is designed to meet the general ethics requirements for CPAs licensed in various states. 

This online CPE/CE webinar covers following key topics:

  • IRS Circular 230
  • AICPA Statements on Standards for Tax Services
  • IRS practice issues
  • IRC Sec. 6694(a) tax return practitioner penalty.

Even though an attorney’s Bar Association and a CPA’s governing board may have ethical rules by which the practitioner must abide, the Internal Revenue Service has its own rule governing the professional activities of those who practice before it, and those rules are found in Circular 230. In addition to conceptual theories, it provides detailed guidance on the applicable specific laws, rules, and regulations. It also shows the controversial side of Circular 230.

This was the best course on ethics that I have ever attended. Mr. Heinkel provided clear examples to demonstrate the points on his slides and did not clutter his presentation with extraneous comments. Great Job


The presenter, Larry was amazing. A lot of examples from his experience helped me understand the subjects & situations. I would like him to present the ethic course for EA (like today) every year.


I can't say enough good things about these courses.


Great Presentation




Great insight!
