Current Ethical Tax Issues Affecting Lawyer's Practices
Ethical considerations for tax professionals have never been more important. With the development of the IRC § 6694(b) penalty and the proposed expansion of Cir. 230 § 10.36, the potential for practitioner discipline and sanctions has never been greater. But a great number of unanswered questions have also arisen as a result of recent litigation surrounding practicing before the IRS. Nevertheless, the proposed revisions to Circular 230 and recent disciplinary cases from the IRS’s Office of Professional Responsibility have created several hot issues in this area that will impact all tax professionals. We invite you to attend and learn about these and other relevant issues affecting ethical dilemmas for tax officials.
