Would it be an ethics violation to furnish the number of 2019 1099s and name of issuer (not amounts) to a deceased taxpayer's son to aid in preparation of his father's 2020 tax return? Two children. This one does not have POA.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, according to an Ethics seminar I attended. I can't tell you the specific place to find in Circ230. Was told it was a violation to use information provided by one client to prepare a 1099 for another client. Meaning ABC company needs to issue 1099 to John Doe. Company XYZ also needs to issued 1099 to John Doe but doesnt have his info. I can't use info ABC gave me to complete XYZs 1099. Crazy!!!
