TAG Posted February 26, 2021 Report Share Posted February 26, 2021 I got into a slightly heated discussionwith my new partner's son, who is a preparer. A remodeling Sch C (not a current client) called and asked if we would E file his self prepared 2019 tax return. I asked and he stated that he self prepared the return and could not E-F the return in Jan (I suspected that IRS had shut down E-F then) and the reason he wanted it E-F was because he was going after Small Bus "free money". The son said we can't do it because we had to prepare the return. I asked him and he said it was part of the ERO requirements. I think he was suspecting fraud and I told him to prepare an engagement letter stating we were only E filing a self prepared return and have the persp client sign it. I know I've gotten too old. But I'm curious, who's correct? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
