Ethical Guidance for Tax Professionals: Tax Analysts Announces the Release of Standards of Tax Practice, 6th Edition
In the post-Enron world, tax professionals are under unprecedented scrutiny by administrators, regulators, lawmakers, clients, and their audit committees. Now, more than ever, tax professionals need a comprehensive guide for professional conduct.

Last issued in 1999, the new edition contains sections on:

§ Recent government successes and losses in tax shelter litigation
§ New rules on taxpayer obligations to disclose “reportable transactions”
§ New advisor obligations
§ Recently proposed Treasury regulations under Circular 230
§ The Sarbanes-Oxley Act and limitations imposed on tax practice
§ New developments in the area of tax malpractice

Standards of Tax Practice has been updated by authors Bernard Wolfman, Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, James P. Holden, a partner at Steptoe & Johnson, and Kenneth L. Harris, a partner at Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg.


Praise for Standards of Tax Practice, 5th Edition:

“This reviewer enthusiastically recommends this book both for guidance on specific problems and for more general study of appropriate practitioner conduct.”
    -- David E. Watts, of counsel to Dewey Ballantine LLP, New York, Tax Notes
