Tax Form

Your mother warned you not to trust strangers, promising big returns. And, such advice is very timely especially where it concerns unlicensed tax preparers. Some fraudulent tax preparers promise big refunds and do deliver by lying on the tax returns they prepare. They get a payout and so does the naive taxpayer because the Internal Revenue Service pays out refunds automatically. However, the bill comes due when the return is audited. Now, the taxpayer is required to repay the IRS. And of course, the fraudulent tax preparer is nowhere to be found. For more details and sad stories, please see the San Jose Mercury News March 20, 2013 article, “Tax-Fraud Scheme Rampant.”

You can find a California licensed and registered tax-return preparer at:
California Board of Accountancy: dca.ca.gov/cba
California Society of Certified Public Accountants: calcpa.org
State Bar of California: calbar.ca.gov
California Society of Enrolled Agents: csea.org
California Tax Education Council: ctec.org
IRS: irs.gov
Source: California Franchise Tax Board, California Tax Education Council

Or, for low-income earners, you could get free tax preparation help at the Fremont Main Library, 1:00 – 4:00 PM, through April 2.
