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 Free Federal Tax Ethics webinar will help CPAs, EAs, AFSP participants and 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.

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.

PW

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.

The speaker was engaging and sounded highly knowledgeable. He provided clear examples to demonstrate the points on his slides and did not clutter his presentation.
