Course Description

Tax practitioners operate in an environment that is distinguishable from most other practice areas. In this course, attorney Peter Lennon discusses the interaction of various laws, regulations, and cases which govern the professional conduct of tax practitioners. Specific topics to be covered include the tax practitioner privilege under IRC Section 7525, potential criminal sanctions that tax attorneys must avoid, and the various regulations that tax return preparers must comply with. Plus, take a deep dive into an attorney's ethical obligations under IRS Circular 230 which governs practice before the IRS. Lastly, gain practical advice for handling the ethical considerations you're most likely to encounter.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Examine the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, with a particular focus on their effect on tax practitioners
  2. Review the ABA Section of Taxation’s Committee on the Standards of Tax Practice
  3. Explore the Internal Revenue Code regulations that govern an attorney’s professional conduct
