The Ethical Dilemma of Dependency with Newly Enacted Tax Benefits

Tax professionals face ethical dilemmas with each client they meet. In today’s blog we’re going to take you to a video scenario where the age-old question of dependency runs up against the pursuit of newly enacted tax benefits. How would you respond to this scenario? After all, if parents don’t claim a dependent, doesn’t that free up the dependent to claim themselves? You make the call.

Comment on the blog and you will be entered into a drawing for a giveaway.

NOTE: Please disregard the polling question within the video. It was for the purpose of the live webinar.
