Preparer Penalty Awareness: IRC 6695(a) Failure to Furnish Copy to Taxpayer

Posted by Juda Gabaie | Mar 02, 2018 | 0 Comments

Did You Know? Internal Revenue Code, Section 6107(a) requires all paid tax preparers to furnish the taxpayer with a completed copy of their tax return before (or at the same time) the return is presented to the taxpayer for signature. Failure to comply with this law may subject you to an Internal Revenue Code, Section 6695(a) penalty of $50 per occurrence with a maximum assessment of $25,500 in any calendar year. You may provide the taxpayer a copy in any acceptable media, including electronic. It must include all information submitted to the IRS, except it isn't required to contain your Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN).

If you are a tax preparer and have been assessed a penalty by the IRS or the Comptroller of MD, contact a professional tax attorney to represent you.
