This panel, co-sponsored by the Standards of Tax Practice and State and Local Taxes Committees, explores select ethical dilemmas when state tax issues arise while representing a client. The panel will use hypothetical problems to address the applicable rules and how they apply in realistic practice settings. Examples include expanding the scope of services, "economic substance" concerns among jurisdictions, the utility of engagement letter descriptions, the circumstances under which the duty of competence requires a state and local specialist, how state and local specialists may protect their firms from liability, and other practical topics.
