Course Description

4.0 CPE TSBPA Approved Ethics for Texas CPAs

Texas Certified Public Accountants (“CPAs”) are required to take a four-hour course once every two years pursuant to Board Rule 523.131 to maintain their licenses. The course and instructor are approved by the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy.

Professional conduct and ethical behavior are really the backbone of the entire accounting and auditing profession. These components form the foundation upon which our creditability with the general public is built, without which, there is no profession. Whether you are a practitioner in public accounting or business and industry, you must always act in accordance with the requirements that define professional conduct and ethical behavior. This course fulfills the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy (Board) requirement. A CPA is challenged in today’s work world to not only serve his/her client or employer but also to protect the public interest by ensuring that there is transparency in financial reporting or there is fair administration of the tax laws. In balancing the two interests, a CPA may find him or herself in an ethical dilemma. This course covers not only basic ethical frameworks but also specific rules governing CPA practice and responsibilities. It concludes with a section on how a CPA can put his or her ethics into action.

Learned a lot about the handling IRS audit process from the initial filing of the return to collections which will be helpful for me at each stage of the audit process
