In life, often the best way to learn something is from our own mistakes. In tax practice, that's simply not an option. Mistakes can result in tax liabilities for clients and malpractice lawsuits against the tax professional. Don't let this be you. In this program, we will attempt to learn from the mistakes of others to avoid making them ourselves. We will first review the legal standards relating to malpractice. Next, we will discuss several "horror stories" involving tax practitioners whose lack of technical understanding and/or lack of common sense led them, and their clients, into disastrous situations. Tax practitioners are required to master complex technical issues in order to prepare returns and give planning advice. It's a risky business. Take this opportunity to prepare yourself for a risk-free busy season with a few sobering cautionary tales.
