IRS 2011 Preparer Letters and Visitation Program

Posted by Tom Henell on Fri, Feb 11, 2011 @ 01:18 PM

On Nov. 22, 2010, the Internal Revenue Service sent out more than 10,000 letters to tax return preparers nationwide to remind them of their obligation to prepare accurate tax returns on behalf of their clients. The letters were sent to a pool of paid preparers who complete large volumes of tax returns with Schedules A, C or E.

During the 2011 filing season, IRS representatives will visit approximately 2,500 tax return preparers who received these letters to further discuss their responsibilities as a return preparer and to verify their compliance with existing return preparer requirements.
