Requirements for CPE in ethics vary from state to state. Please contact your state board to confirm your requirements.

Explore case studies drawn from real-life situations involving CPAs in tax practice. From tax shelters to preparing small business tax returns, learn about ethical issues in the context of tax services and taking positions on tax issues that range from “probable” to “more likely than not” to a “realistic possibility.” Gain insight by placing yourself in situations that require application and understanding of relevant ethical considerations and standards established by the Service, AICPA, Circular 230, and the Code. Consider real-world tax questions that deal with independence, knowledge of errors in returns, advice to taxpayers, fees charged in shelter, and other transactions, and standards applicable to uncertain tax positions, among others.

Topics Discussed:

  • Analysis of Tax Ethics Requirements from Relevant Sources–the Service, AICPA Standards, Circular 230, the Code and Litigated Tax Cases
  • Fact Patterns from Actual Practice Situations and Litigated Tax Cases
  • Special Ethical Issues in Select Areas: Independence, Permitted and Prohibited Services, Asserting Uncertain Tax Positions, Client Conflicts and Preparing and Signing Returns

Learning Objectives:
This course will help you understand what ethical standards and considerations are critical to tax professionals, recognize the presence of ethical issues, and apply ethical standards and considerations to real-life, tax-related situations.

Prerequisite: Experience in tax reporting
