Many tax practitioners, as a source of revenue, routinely represent their clients in civil audits but fail to recognize (or simply ignore) when they are creating a risk of criminal prosecution for their clients – and themselves! This creates legal and ethical issues for the practitioner, as well as inherent conflicts of interest in protecting a client’s interests and the practitioner’s professional reputation.
This webinar will provide effective strategies to recognize and help mitigate the inherent risks for the practitioner and their clients when faced with an eggshell audit, where willful intent may result in 3 to 5 years in jail.
You will learn to recognize the telltale signs of an eggshell and reverse eggshell audit where a client may have committed income tax evasion without the tax practitioner's knowledge or participation. Understand how a practitioner’s action in these cases can lead to the danger of committing tax perjury or obstruction. The session will cover when it is appropriate to refer a client's representation over to competent criminal tax counsel.
