IRS Tables Fingerprinting for Preparers as Part of Background Check

IRS will not go forward with fingerprinting of tax preparers as part of the background check that will determine if they are eligible to receive a preparer tax identification number, an IRS official says on a wide- ranging Tax Talk Today broadcast that covers 2011 filing changes. Preston Benoit, deputy director of the IRS’s Return Preparer Office, says that IRS has “tabled the fingerprinting option right now.” Instead a group has been formed to determine how to move forward, with consumer reporting agencies still a likely contender.
