Bryan C. Skarlatos chairs the panel "Ethical and Penalty Issues For Tax Practitioners: When Good Tax Planning Turns Bad" at the The 75th Institute On Federal Taxation

The NYU School of Professional Studies Institute on Federal Taxation is designed for the practitioner who must frequently anticipate and handle federal tax matters. It provides high-level updates, practical advice you can implement, and in-depth analysis of the latest trends and developments from leading experts.

Participants return to work with a wealth of materials, plus the tools and strategies needed to help save their clients’ tax dollars and provide them with better service. The six-day program encompasses all major areas of tax, including current developments; tax controversies; corporate tax; partnerships, LLCs, and real estate; trusts and estates; executive compensation and employee benefits; closely-held businesses; international tax; ethical transactions; and hot tax topics.

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 a taxpayer filing a return advance any reasonably arguable position? What are the tax practitioner’s duties with respect to the accuracy of the taxpayer’s tax return? How does the IRS police the accuracy of tax returns and when do penalties apply? This panel discusses real-world situations to illustrate the ethical and penalty standards that apply to taxpayers and tax return preparers in every day practice.
