Ethics in Taxes

Description

Ethical behavior is taking responsibility for personal conduct. Ethical rules and regulationsestablished by the IRS and other agencies provide the guidelines for Tax Preparers. A tax preparer often finds himself in a tricky situation. The Internal Revenue Service obviously expects a full, by-the-code accounting of all client taxes owed, while the preparer's client is eager to exploit the slightest amount of wiggle room to his own advantage. Penalties may be imposed on a tax preparer for actions taken or not taken. Awareness of these penalties and the proper procedures can help a preparer comply with the law and avoid penalties. The result is a regularly recurring set of ethical issues for the tax professional.  This ethics course is designed to provide tax preparers with an ethical framework that can guide preparers through potential ethical dilemmas.
