Radio PSA text script Choosing a Preparer

TAXPAYER:  

I NEED A TAX PREPARER.  HOW SHOULD I CHOOSE ONE?

NARRATOR:

USING A PAID TAX PREPARER THIS YEAR?

BEFORE PAYING SOMEONE TO DO YOUR TAXES… MAKE SURE THEY’RE QUALIFIED.

ASK ABOUT THEIR FEES, EXPERIENCE, AND TRAINING.  CHECK WITH BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU.

AVOID ANYONE WHO PROMISES A HIGHER REFUND.

AND, REVIEW YOUR TAX RETURN BEFORE YOU SIGN IT… AND MAKE SURE YOUR PREPARER SIGNS IT, TOO.  

FOR MORE TIPS, VISIT IRS.GOV AND SEARCH “CHOOSING A PREPARER”.
