”Now there is a new book that all tax practitioners should consider adding to their collections: The Circular 230 Deskbook. The book overviews and highlights the do’s and don’ts of tax practice and the consequences to tax practitioners who fall short of the prescribed professional benchmarks.”
—The Journal of the American Taxation Association
”[The Circular 230 Deskbook is] a masterful analysis and an important guide to the Internal Revenue Service’s labyrinthine rules and regulations governing tax penalties, reportable transactions, and the conduct of attorneys, accountants, and others who ’practice’ before the IRS … The Circular 230 Deskbook provides a comprehensive, complete, and analytical examination of the topic.”
—Bridget J. Crawford, Associate Professor of Law, Pace University
The Circular 230 Deskbook from PLI helps tax practitioners comply with complex Circular 230 amendments more easily — and avoid costly penalties and sanctions.
The Deskbook shows you how to meet mandated duties applicable to six types of covered opinions; comply with critical requirements for written tax advice; carry out prescribed duties when advising in preparation of tax returns; satisfy reporting/list maintenance rules for six types of reportable transactions; qualify for ”safe harbors” that free you from burdensome Circular standards, exploit proven defenses against the Code’s § 6662 penalties, and avoid common errors that can trigger these § 6662 penalties.
The Deskbook brings you laminated, quick-reference compliance tools, including a Circular 230 written tax advice decision tree; a Circular 230 compliance chart for covered opinions highlighting exceptions and special rules; a Circular 230 compliance flow chart detailing affirmative duties and prohibited activities; a covered opinions compliance checklist; and a reportable transactions compliance flow chart.
Updated at least once a year, The Circular 230 Deskbook: Related Penalties • Reportable Transactions • Working Forms is an essential compliance tool for every tax professional who practices before the IRS.
