Tefilla Halacha

When the sheli’ach tzibbur finishes chazarat hashatz, Shulchan Aruch rules that he need not step back 3 steps. Mishneh Berureh explains that he may rely on the 3 steps he takes at the end of kaddish shalem. Some suggest that if he will move from his place for tachanun, he should step back the 3 steps after his chazaras hashatz – and certainly on Mondays and Thursdays that would also hold true.
