What do I need to add to a letter in which it states my tax preparer is responsible for my tax return and sign?

For my tax return holding all liability and signed by both of us?

Use the search box at the www.irs.gov website for 1040 and look at the bottom of the form where you sign and then look at the place the paid preparer is supposed to also sign it and read each statement that is enclosed there for this purpose and time in your life OK.
Form 1040, U. S. Individual Income Tax Return

www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040.pdf

Declaration of preparer (other than taxpayer) is based on all information of which preparer has any knowledge.

Print/Type preparer’s name Preparer’s signature Date

  1. Tax preparers are only liable for any penalty that is caused by their mistake. If their mistake causes you to owe more additional taxes, that part remains your liability (you would have owed that part if they did not make the mistake).

  2. No such thing. Can you give a few more details? You sign your tax return and you are 100% responsible for what is on it. Most preparers will pay the penalties if they make a mistake though they are not required to. Whether the tax return was right or not you still owed the money.

  4. If you’re in the US, YOU are by law responsible no matter what the preparer signed. You’ll get nowhere with your argument.

  5. the only way you can shift the responsibility of your tax return to your preparer is a Power of Attorney and since they also have to sign that form I doubt very much you will get anyone to sign one
