Position on the Regulation of Tax Return Preparers

The National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP) is proud to support “raising the bar” through fair, effective and not overly-burdensome regulation of all tax return preparers. The effectiveness of tax administration, in part, relies on the consistent quality of work generated by tax return preparers who stay up-to-date on tax law through continuing education.

The intent of this document is to urge Congress to continue to pursue pathways toward a higher standard for all tax professionals by providing the IRS with the regulatory authority and the budgetary resources to effectively administer a program regulating tax preparers.
