Forrest T. Jones Professional
Liability Insurance

Are you protected by a solid professional liability policy? What would you do if you were subpoenaed as a result of a client being involved in a lawsuit?  (tip: don’t just turn over documents without talking to an attorney.)  Don’t leave your business and potentially your personal finances at risk to legal fees or damages from a lawsuit. The Accountants Professional Liability Plan, available through CSTC addresses the exposures members most frequently face.

Whether you are a bookkeeper, tax preparer, enrolled agent or CPA, this newly enhanced errors-and-omissions plan can be tailored to fit your business – and your budget – with an array of deductable and liability options. Multiple installment payment options are also available.  The policy has recently been broadened to pay attorney fees to assist with response to a subpoena for documents, deposition or trial testimony if you haven’t yet been sued or had a “claim” made against you.
