If you decide to have a tax preparer file your income tax return, it is important to choose that person carefully. You may be eligible to use a volunteer tax return preparer through a program such as the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA). However, if you decide to use a paid tax preparer, it is important that you find a qualified tax professional and remember that you are responsible for everything on your return even when it is prepared by someone else.

    Make sure your preparer fully explains every form you are asked to sign. In addition, ask your preparer about the use and disclosure of your personal tax return information.
