This two-hour ethics program will review the ethical issues that arise in everyday practice, what the guidance advises practitioners to do and what practitioners need to do to protect themselves. The program will also review the IRS Office of Professional Responsibility, how it polices practitioner conduct, and what an OPR hearing is like. The program will also review the various sorts of options OPR has to punish taxpayers, and review strategies when helping practitioners navigate this area.
Due to the in-depth nature of this workshop, attendance is limited so all attendee questions can be answered.
