Ethical Sales Tax Practices Webinar

Ethical issues in the work place are being scrutinized by the government, investors, customers, vendors, the press, our peers, law enforcement and more. Ignorance will not necessarily keep you from personally being prosecuted in a civil and criminal court. It is important for tax professionals, as well as corporate managers and owners, to know the potential consequences for failure to properly report and remit sales and use taxes.


Tax professionals are governed by numerous organizations that have the authority to review their actions for ethical considerations. When dealing with sales and use tax, you are often confronted by situations that do not fall neatly within the rules. As taxpayers have become more aggressive in their tax positions, states have developed tax practice standards to make it costly for taxpayers and tax practitioners who cross the line.


In this 90-minute interactive webinar, sales tax expert Diane Yetter of the Sales Tax Institute and Jordan Goodman of Horwood, Marcus and Berk will engage with you on how to evaluate ethical scenarios in the world of sales tax. Register for this webinar so you are aware of the ethical issues that can potentially cause you serious problems and feel relief knowing that you can successfully navigate these issues to avoid trouble. In addition, this webinar qualifies for 1.5 CPE credits and is a great way to meet your ethics CPE requirement for the year!

  • Explore a range of different ethical scenarios and learn how to navigate these potential situations in real life
