Ethics Update: Ethics Issues for the CPA (Including a Guide to Circular 230)

Overview

Yes, taking an ethics course is a requirement to keep your CPA license.  But that doesn’t mean that an ethics course can’t be practical and meaningful.  This update course is meant to give the CPA four hours of ethics CPE but at the same time provide a detailed analysis of the Circular 230 rules for conduct of a tax practice.  Best practices and guidance issues will also be provided.
