Avoiding “Ghost Tax Preparers” Webinar

Thursday, January 16, 2020 - 2 comments

Tax preparers who charge a fee to do your taxes, but never sign your tax return are breaking the law. No signature? Means no accountability. No proof of existence. 

Hiring a tax preparer (often referred to as "ghost tax preparers") will increase your chances for tax fraud, penalties and additional taxes. 

The Internal Revenue Service, Franchise Tax Board and California Tax Education Council want you to know that knowledge is power when it comes to choosing a tax preparer.

  • What are their qualifications?
  • What are they required to do?
  • What should you look for?
  • What are the appropriate actions for you to take?
  • Why do the IRS, FTB and CTEC care and what are they doing?

Join us for a free and informative 30-minute webinar that will prepare you in choosing your tax preparer.
