Event Synopsis

New penalty rules for tax return preparers pose significant challenges for tax practitioners and their clients. There often is a great amount of uncertainty about what is a “tax shelter” and when and how to disclose return positions. Practitioners also must wrestle with how to conduct proper due diligence, understand the standards of conduct necessary to avoid 6694 penalties and determine when to rely on information provided by clients or third parties. If this weren’t enough, what else may lie ahead?
