Basic Ethics Inquiries

Members' opinions are based on the limited information provided to them; they are not liable to report back in the future if, in fact, their opinions change as a result of new information, additional knowledge, or revisions to the rules of the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct or the TSBPA Rules of Professional Conduct.

Ethics questions asked of committee members are confidential.
