NSA News - Office of Professional Responsibility Announces Practitioner Disciplinary Sanctions

10 Apr 2015 11:07 AM | Anonymous

The IRS Office of Professional Responsibility named practitioners subject to recent disciplinary actions and the specific misconduct involved in each case in Announcement 2015-7.   

The announcement, which was published in Internal Revenue Bulletin 2015-13, lists attorneys, certified public accountants, enrolled agents, enrolled actuaries, enrolled retirement plan agents, and appraisers—professionals subject to the rules of Circular 230—sanctioned by OPR, along with the effective dates of the disciplinary actions described.   

OPR said disbarment or suspension from practice, censure and monetary penalties are among the sanctions to be imposed for violation of the rules.   

NSA notes that Section 10.24 of Circular 230 precludes practitioners from knowingly accepting assistance from—or giving assistance to—any person who is under disbarment or suspension from practice before the Internal Revenue Service if the assistance relates to a matter or matters constituting practice before the Internal Revenue Service.
