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.

Alisondid a great job in presenting the information regarding S Corps owned by Trusts and the intricacies of tax laws and how it applies to them. A lot of information that I wasn't familiar with and it broadened my understanding and allows me to apply what i learned to situations that apply. Kudos and thank you!

If you have not had the pleasure of listening to/seeing Alison in a tax seminar, take one as soon as possible. His depth of knowledge surpases in dealing with the IRS is astounding. Even if you think you never have, and never will, represent a taxpayer, this class has something for you - knowledge to keep yourself in business without hearing from the IRS. Many tax professionals have had Bob represent them in front of the IRS. Do yourself a big favor and sit through this class

I usually dread taking ethic courses every 4 years but found this course very informative and very interesting. The presenter chose interesting real life situations and was able to relate to me to he point that I could review my conduct regarding clients in the past and how to implement a change in future handling of several clients.

This ethics webinar was so valuable to me in pointing out potential client issues that I need to inquire further about. Also reminds me that I have the right to ask for documentation when client information is in doubt. I can also withdraw from the engagement, an empowering right!

Great presenter, lots of illustrative examples. I enjoyed the webinar and I would like to thanks myCPE for providing Free Ethics courses during the pandemic.

Great ethic webinar. Very helpful. A must for CPAs. Speaker was excellent. I learned a lot of details about the way practicing CPA's will be impacted in their practice because of new environment and regulations
