Another look at the FairTax proposal…

Posted by taxguru on March 27, 2010

The Fair Tax Solution – Book Review – A new book by Ken Hoagland.

One of the big selling points of the FairTax plan was the elimination of the IRS. That just became much more difficult with the increased powers given to the IRS to enforce our new socialized medicine schemes.

Preparer ID Numbers

Posted by taxguru on March 25, 2010

IRS Provides Guidance on Identifying Numbers for Tax Return Preparers – IRS will be making it mandatory for paid preparers to use the special ID number. This is actually a good thing for us preparers. I have been using a PTIN ever since it became available, because that decreases the exposure of my Social Security number on tax returns I prepare.

You can download Form W-7P to apply for a PTIN.
