Standing up for Taxpayers—CEP’s new report

CEP released a report, Standing Up for Taxpayers: Why Minimum Standards for Paid Preparers Matter, that details the issues that consumers, particularly those with lower incomes, face when seeking help from paid tax preparers, and discusses the potential impact of legislation in Illinois that establishes minimum competency standards for paid preparers.

In advance of our release and the IL primaries, we reached out to ten attorney general and eight gubernatorial candidates with a request for comment, receiving responses from a majority of candidates.

The report and all supporting documents are available at our Policy & Advocacy page.
