Bryan C. Skarlatos will present the webinar "Ethical And Penalty Standards For Advising Clients And Taking Positions On Tax Returns" for the CPA Academy

Tax law is complicated and the answers are not always clear. When a client wants you to take a position on a tax return, such as reporting income as capital gain, or taking a deduction, how sure do you have to be that your position is correct? If the IRS audits the position, when can the client be subject to penalties? When can you, the preparer, be subject to penalties? When you are collecting information from your client, can you just accept what your client tells you, or do you have to audit the client’s representations? What are your ethical responsibilities under the Statements of Standards for Tax Services when confronted with unclear positions? This program will address these and other questions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to provide your clients with the best advice possible. 
  • Identify ways to avoid penalties and complying with your ethical obligations.
