Monthly Dinner Meeting – January 16, 2014
Speaker: Carol W. Thompson, EA
Dante Club of Sacramento
2330 Fair Oaks Boulevard Sacramento, CA 95825
Just in time for tax season Carol Thompson, EA with guide us through the latest changes in Circle 230 and the Office of Professional Responsibility.
First, the IRS began testing began for Return Tax Return Preparers (RTRP’s), and then a lawsuit stopped the program. (IRS appeals are still pending.) In the meantime, the PTIN program continues, and the IRS is still tracking down tax preparers who didn’t get the memo. For the past several years, the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) has been making it difficult to prepare taxes without the feeling that someone is looking over your shoulder. The bottom line is that you must be ever more diligent in writing tax returns and checking all deductions and credits. This course covers the annual review of Circular 230, IRC codes, regulations, penalties, and sanctions as they apply to the field of tax preparation. We will also look at current sanctions and court cases against tax preparers.
Please join us as Carol Thompson, EA gives us the latest updates as we prepare to start tax season.
