The Best Tax Preparers in Tucson AZ Are the Ones Proven Safe To Use

The state of Arizona does not require tax preparers in Tucson AZ to qualify for a license or to be registered, so there is no state standard for competency. The IRS does now require all tax preparers to apply for a PTIN (identification number) but that is merely a registration with no comptency exam or educational requirements. Arizona does require tax preparers to be registered soley for the purpose of e-filing, and Arizona requires all tax preparers to be registered for e-filing who are filing more than 11 tax returns.

Similarly, tax return preparers are not legally required to have professional liability insurance (such as Errors & Omissions) to reimburse you in the event of loss due to error or negligence.

So without any state oversight of tax return preparers, there's no guarantee that any particular tax preparer in Tucson AZ is even competent, is doing business ethically, delivering value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all tax return preparers in Tucson AZ who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous clients to verify high satisfaction with their tax return preparation, verified liability insurance, best business practices, good complaint record, and more.

Numerous Services Performed By Tax Return Preparers in Tucson AZ
Tax preparation can be performed by CTEC Registered Tax Preparers (CRTPs), Enrolled Agents (EAs), and CPAs. They can also advise you on tax related issues.
