Ethical Challenges for Today's Practitioner


Gain valuable insights on maintaining professional competence amidst technological advancements and global shifts.

Just when you thought you had mastered the basic rules of ethics that apply to tax professionals, the world was turned on its head with a global pandemic and the rise of new technology. Once thought of as an easy A in college or law school, our increasingly complex work environment has presented more ethical challenges than ever before. Competence no longer means just understanding the tax code; privilege might be breached by toddlers; and the standard definitions of what it means to practice in a jurisdiction have been stretched farther than we imagined possible. Come learn what Amazon's Alexa, the metaverse and global nomads have to do with ethics in this highly practical session discussing the ethical issues that arise in our everyday practice as tax professionals and where to look for guidance when the "old" rules no longer seem to apply.
