Course Description

While most people probably believe that they have an inherent understanding of what it means to be ethical, the practical application of accounting ethics is much more complicated than simply trying to do the right thing. This video course will examine the subject of ethics within the practice of accounting. By the end of this course, you should understand the rules governing the authority to practice, the duties and restrictions relating to practice before the IRS, the sanctions that may be imposed on a practitioner who violates those duties, and the rules relating to the disciplinary proceedings where violations are alleged. Your instructor will use practical, hypothetical real-world examples to further examine these topics and test your knowledge of the ethical rules and standards for tax professionals.

Watch, listen and learn as your expert instructor guides you through each lesson step-by-step. During this media-rich learning experience, you will see and hear each lesson just as if your instructor were there with you. Reinforce your learning with the text of our course transcript.

We have incorporated years of classroom training experience and teaching techniques to develop an easy-to-use course that you can customize to meet your personal learning needs. Simply launch the easy-to-use interface, click to start a video lesson or open the transcript and you’re on your way to mastering accounting ethics.
