November 18, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
On November 18, 2020, Bryan C. Skarlatos chairs an ethics webinar entitled, “Ethical Issues for Tax Practitioners: Good Tax Planning, Aggressive Tax Advice, or Criminal Tax Evasion” at The NYU School Of Professional Studies 79th Virtual Institute On Federal Taxation.
Description: Is that payment a gift or compensation for services? Is the expenditure a deductable repair or a capital improvement? Is the income ordinary income or capital gain? How sure do you have to be before you advise a client on issues such as these? Can you rely on what the client tells you or do you have to audit the client’s information? When can you, as the practitioner, get caught up in the client’s wrongdoing? Responsible tax practitioners must know how to approach these questions. This panel provides an up-date on the ethical, civil penalty and criminal standards governing practitioners who give tax advice and how those standards apply in everyday practice.

Miriam L. Fisher, Esq., Global Chair of Tax Controversy, Latham & Watkins, Washington, DC
