Ethics - Due Diligence
Due diligence requirements serve an important function in curbing problem preparers and decreasing the risk of improper refunds to ineligible taxpayers. However, although a powerful tool in dealing with unscrupulous preparers how do ethical preparers navigate IRC SS 6695(g), the PATH Act, Circular 230 and increased due diligence requirements as well as steering clear of other potential problems.
