Course Description

In this webinar, attendees will review the duties of a tax professional in advising clients on tax return preparation and audits. Using real-life examples, we will identify potential conflicts and other problems that may arise in the course of a tax professional's representation, how to identify those conflicts and problems and recommended methods for addressing them. Among the topics covered will be 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.  
 
Learning Objectives:


  • Sensitize tax professionals to their particular duties in connection with tax return preparation and audits

  • Provide cautionary tales to highlight the risks of failing to identify and address problems at an early stage

  • Arm tax professionals with the necessary tools to safely navigate conflicts and other problems that arise in the course of carrying out their duties
