IRS Regulating More Tax Preparers
H&R Blockheads. The IRS wants to save you from your rogue tax accountant. - Being subject to extensive regulation and continuing education requirements as a CPA, I can't share this writer's sentiment that IRS is overstepping its bounds by requiring other "mom and pop" tax preparers to be regulated and take update courses.
I do share the writer's sentiment that the trend towards having the State and Federal governments prepare tax returns for people is not a positive development because of the extreme conflict of interest that entails.
