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 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.
