Penalties For Tax Preparers

Under current law, a tax return preparer is liable for a penalty under Code Sec. 6694(b) equal to the greater of $5,000 or 50 percent of the income derived by the preparer if any part of the understatement of tax on the return is due to a willful attempt by the tax return preparer to understate the tax liability on the return, or any reckless or intentional disregard of rules or regulations.
