Description: Ethics - Understanding Recent Update of the Due Diligence Penalty

Due diligence requirements serve an important function in curbing problem-preparers and decreasing the risk of improper refunds to ineligible taxpayers. However, IRC § 6695(g) has transformed into something which is nearly unnavigable to many preparers and those advising them. Come learn about the background to the IRC § 6695(g) penalty, address recent revisions to the applicable due diligence regulation, and highlight other potential problems with the current system that may impact you.
