13 Feb: Sweeney Measure To Regulate Tax Preparers Is Now Law

TRENTON – A measure sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Steve Sweeney, which would regulate the way tax preparers handle their clients’ tax returns has been signed into law.

“This legislation is about making sure that people who are entrusted with the task of preparing other people’s taxes handle the files property, and do not take advantage of those they are being paid to help,” said Senator Sweeney, D-Gloucester, Cumberland and Salem. “The new law also directs tax preparers to explain the forms to their clients and make sure that they understand all forms and fees.”
