Conflict of Interest

I am going thru a divorce. I read in a publication somewhere that our CPA has to walk away from representing either of us since he was our CPA. If I am right can you tell me what publication that is in so I can take to my lawyer. He is siding with my husband and I don't think is right.

Thank you,

Cris

It depends; for reference, A conflict of interest exists whenever a person misuses, or gives the appearance of misusing, a position of public trust for private benefit or personal advantage.However, rule permits the tax preparer to accept and perform the engagement, if appropriate waivers of conflicts of interest have been obtained; the tax preparer reasonably believes that the tax preparer will be able to provide competent and diligent representation to each affected client; the representation is not prohibited by law; the representation does not involve the assertion of a claim by one client against another client represented by the lawyer in the same litigation or other proceeding before a tribunal; and each affected client gives informed consent, confirmed in writing.
