MaSEA May Ethics: When To Walk Away

With Karen Ceppetelli, Beth Logan And Ron Pallisco

When: May 19, 5PM-7PM

Where: Via Zoom

We’re going to focus on sections 10.34 d and 10.35 of Circular 230 and other relevant parts. We’ll address these by telling real stories of clients that came to us that we said “no, I’m sorry, I won’t do your taxes” and stories of “why did I say yes to doing that guy’s taxes?” Participants will be invited to tell their own stories and ask questions. Participants will receive 2 IRS CE credits for attending the course and completing the required poll questions throughout the duration of the webinar.

*Please Note, if you have signed up for the MaSEA CE Special, you will be automatically registered for this course during the week of April 28.*

*MaSEA members, please use the email address that was used to create your NAEA membership to ensure that you receive the membership discounted price.*

*NAEA members, please provide your NAEA number when registering or your registration will be cancelled.
