This two-hour ethics course explores valuation ethics and cases. A power-point presentation is backed up by an outline and a complete 10-case file for reference. The presentation implies a possibility that IRS finds that valuation practitioner discipline may be less efficient than various practitioner penalty provisions, and the use of taxpayer punitive economic consequences. An implied larger problem is a short sighted appraiser selection criteria that results in (a) minimalist appraisal, by (b) unqualified or low-effort appraisers; much of which may be based upon taxpayer reluctance to ascribe value to a detailed, high-quality appraisal. The case facts teach lessons through the stories of published cases.
- Identify current principles in play for a potential winning appraisal while determining a strategy to avoiding both ethics entanglement and a more negative taxpayer outcome.
- Personally derive a feel for what is needed to protect the taxpayer, the tax practitioner and the appraiser, and conclude whether or not the weight of a misstep is squarely on the taxpayer.
- Identify a path to a more efficient arrangement for obtaining a high quality appraisal report and appraiser; the taxpayer and/or tax practitioner then understands and enables a maximized opportunity to determine taxpayer's own efficient, detail justifiable, highest taxpayer outcome preparation.
