As part of your Tax School registration, you have two opportunities to participate in this two-hour event:

Wednesday, December 14 at 1:00 p.m. or Friday, December 16 at 10:00 a.m.

Finally! An interactive, educational Ethics training that has you learning from real-life scenarios happening now in your office. Melinda’s teaching style will keep you involved as you participate in webinar activities focused on relevant situations.

Find out exactly what your requirements are per Cir 230 and ethical behavior required by the IRS. Learn what to look for in your office so that any non-compliance or weak areas can be corrected before the upcoming tax season.

What would you do if your office got audited? You’ll learn from other tax professionals who have encountered audits and find out what you need to do to pass.
