Unnecessary Disclosure Cross Examination Risk

Where is the error though? It may be a redundant form being filled out, but nothing in error. Just being overly cautious and signalling that you’re a decent and conscientious agent trying to keep it all above board

It is in error. It is unnecessary. It doesn’t show that you are overly cautious; it simply demonstrates that you don’t know the correct answer.

I really don’t know how it would reflect on one’s decency.

It illustrates the exact opposite of being conscientious. It shows that you didn’t spend the 2 minutes necessary to look up the correct answer in the Act and the Code. That’s not creating a favourable impression in Court. In cross-examination, a lawyer will try to make you look foolhardy and cavalier. My point is simply: “don’t provide anyone with this ammunition”.
