Bryan Skarlatos will present a CLE program entitled "Ethics for Tax Lawyers: Answers to Your Most Difficult Questions" on December 5, 2019

The tax law is complicated and the right answer is not always clear. How sure do you have to be before you can tell a client it is okay to take a deduction, exclude income, or characterize income as capital gain?  Can you accept what a taxpayer tells you, or do you have to audit a taxpayer’s records? When can the taxpayer be subject to penalties? And, when can you as the advisor be subject to penalties? 

This course is not a dry recitation of Circular 230 and the ethical rules. We will discuss the history and evolution of ethical standards for tax practitioners and we will use real life hypothetical examples to show how those standards apply in every day practice. A course like this is essential for tax professionals who want to represent their clients effectively while staying on the right side of the line and avoiding penalties.
