Christopher Rizek Discusses Ethics at NYU 78th Institute on Federal Taxation
How sure do you have to be before you tell a client it is okay to take a deduction or defer income? Do you have to audit a client’s records, or can you just rely on what the client says? After the return has been filed, how do you handle an audit when you know the client’s tax return is wrong? What do you do if the information you submitted to the IRS is not accurate? When do you have to worry about conflicts of interest? While the answers to these questions may not always be clear, the law and related ethical standards provide very specific rules to help find the answers. This panel of expert practitioners addresses these and other thorny ethical issues that arise in everyday tax practice through the use of hypothetical examples. This program is essential for tax professionals who want to stay on the right side of the line.
