On the Radio: Michael Best Discusses New National Poll Showing Strong Public Support for Regulating Paid Tax Preparers

Michael Best, Senior Policy Advocate at the Consumer Federation of America, discusses CFA’s recent national poll results where 4 out of 5 respondents believe paid tax preparers should have to pass a competency test, be licensed and provide a list of fees before completing a tax return.

Michael highlights the poll results, discusses the current state of regulation, the high instance of consumer use, the documented problems with paid preparers, and how consumers can find a credentialed preparer on Consumer Talk with Michael Finney on KGO 810 and Money Life with Chuck Jaffe.
