A tax preparer assists an individual, a company, or organization in setting up and writing an accurate income tax return to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) each year. Preparers must make sure the entity for which the tax forms are being prepared pays the lowest taxes allowed by law; they must do this while ensuring that any deductions, exemptions, or claims adhere to current tax laws.
Tax Preparer Tasks
Examine receipts, paystubs, and other documentation to fill out financial forms.
Apply deductions and credits according to regulations.
