CPA liability exposures during tax season are always a concern, regardless of economic or professional conditions. CAMICO’s claims experience shows that many high-exposure tax claims have certain characteristics in common, primarily as follows:
- The services for which the client had engaged the CPA were unclear.
- The CPA had not clarified his or her role or the client’s expectations, usually because an understanding between the CPA and the client had not been reached or adequately documented.
