AB 1140 could have major impact on tax preparers


If enacted, AB 1140 would require tax preparers registered with the California Tax Education Council (CRTPs) to provide taxpayers with all of the preparer’s costs and fees up front, and to refer taxpayers who may be eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) to free tax preparation services. The bill was passed by the California Assembly and is now being heard by the California Senate.
