Every day in our practices as tax professionals, we are confronted with a myriad of legal and ethical issues. This class will explore legal issues that tax professionals are faced with from the ethical perspective relative to circular 230 and California and federal law. In the handout material and the PowerPoint presentation, you will learn how to properly handle client relationships, client confidential information, challenges presented by clients, and the limits and regulations regarding the license that you hold as a tax professional.
