Maryland is one of a handful of states that regulate professional tax return preparers. The Maryland Board of Individual Tax Prepapers enforces those laws and regulations.
Violators have been fined as much as $20,000! I am one of a handful of attorneys who represented tax return preparers before the board. In one case, the board wanted to fine my client $5,000 and a permanent ban, but through my advocacy, that was reduced to $500 and a 90 day suspension.
If you have been summoned by the Board, call me at 410.727.6006. No charge for the initial call.
