The ABA Tax Section offers a teleconference and webcast today on Tax Practitioner Penalties: A Primer from 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. EST:
The last several years of tax enforcement have focused unprecedented attention on tax professionals and the standards under which they provide their services. As a result of this push toward greater accountability, tax practitioners are faced with an array of new dilemmas: stricter statutory, regulatory, and ethical regimes; civil penalty investigations; injunction proceedings; and criminal prosecutions. Join our distinguished panelists as they outline and discuss the potentially applicable civil, criminal, and ethical sanctions for practitioners who run afoul of the rules as well as the current regulatory and enforcement environment, and its practical effect on the day to day work of tax professionals.
