Are you sure that your tax return preparer really has the credentials that he or she claims to have? The IRS is checking up on those who profess to be attorneys, certified public accountants (CPAs) or enrolled agents (EAs).
Why? Because these professionals are exempt from new competency testing and continuing-education requirements the IRS has imposed as part of an ongoing effort to clamp down on unqualified tax preparers. As of the end of last year, the IRS couldn’t validate at least 6,000 preparers who claimed to be exempt, so it sent them letters requesting proof of status.
