What To Do When a Client Dies (2 Hours Tax CE)
Claudia Hill, EA, MBA

Death prematurely stops the individual's tax year and triggers filing requirements for the entity that follows. Often the decedent’s executor or personal representative doesn't have a clue of their responsibilities for so many tasks and tax duties in winding up their loved one’s final debts to IRS. Using a “Key Issues” and case study approach, this workshop provides a guide to the process, filing requirements, and checklists for use along the way.

Learning Objectives

  • Provide a basic understanding of the post-death tax compliance process
  • Distinguish what income is included on Form 1040 v. Form 1041
  • Compare the process when a taxpayer has a will or trust vs. dying intestate
  • Take-home checklists you will use whenever a client dies
  • Use a case study approach to explain examples

2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time
Show Me the Money – The Ethics of Fees (2 Hours EA Ethics CE)
Claudia Hill, EA, MBA

Most practitioners don't enter this profession for their health. They expect to earn a respectable living from their expertise. There is both an art and an ethical consideration when setting fees and deciding how one charges for their services. This session looks at the ethical issues, many of which are not settled for Enrolled Agents, and then asks the audience to participate in scenarios featuring such issues.

Learning Objectives

  • Review constraints from Circular 230 and case law affecting the charging of fees
  • Consider the four typical ways tax accountants set their fees
  • Discuss issues with conflicts of interest and fees charged
