What would you do when faced with an ethical situation? The class will be an interactive review of real life situations experienced by various tax preparers. Attendees will receive a description of a situation that took place in their office. They will be asked to evaluate if this situation presents an ethical question/Circular 230 situation. What are the possible options to address the situation while keeping our practice and our wits intact?
