Sharon L. McCarthy presented a webinar entitled "Ethical Considerations for Tax Pros: Recognizing Conflicts and Asking for Advice" through CPAAcademy.org on January 30, 2020
In this webinar, attendees reviewed the duties of a tax professional in advising clients on tax return preparation and audits. Using real-life examples, we identified potential conflicts and other problems that may arise in the course of a tax professional's representation, as well as discussed recommended methods for addressing them. Among the topics covered were a tax professional's duty of candor to the IRS and the potential for discipline and, in extreme circumstances, criminal prosecution for failure to comply with one's duties.
