ICPAS – METRO CHAPTER
Client Tax Fraud – A Practical Guide for Protecting Your Rights
Speaker: Howard L. Stone, Stone, McGuire & Siegel,
This session will familiarize attendees with the area of
criminal tax fraud and related criminal offenses. Understanding criminal tax
fraud can prevent the loss of a CPA’s license, professional reputation, and the
expenditure of legal fees. With knowledge of this material, attendees will reap
the rewards of positive reputations, as well as the security of freedom from
fear of being prosecuted because of the acts of a client.
In this session, attendees will also learn about recent tax
fraud prosecutions and how to protect themselves and their firm from criminal
prosecution. We will discuss federal law enforcement techniques used to enforce
federal criminal law, with a focus on tax fraud.
