Event Description

Taxpayers are ultimately responsible for their own returns, but return preparers are subject to ethical standards that make them responsible for what is in the return, what is not in the return and how that information is presented. For example, return preparers are expected to inform clients about errors discovered and the consequences of ignoring them. The preparer must evaluate the reliability of information furnished by the taxpayer.
