Description

The course provides a concise overview of the most common conduct and ethical issues faced by IRS employees. This is based on an internal IRS directive entitled "Plain Talk About Ethics and Conduct". The document provides guidance to IRS staff at all levels on the agency's ethical standards. All IRS employees are subject to the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) Standards of Ethical Conduct. The OGE Standards, which are applicable to all executive branch employees, are uniform ethics regulations covering such topics as gifts between employees, conflicts of interest, appearances of a lack of impartiality, and outside employment. Participants will walk away with an increased situational awareness of the ethical requirements of IRS employees, and how practitioners can avert or prevent any potential ethical problems before they occur when communicating or interacting with IRS officials at any level.

This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.
