Too many tax preparers?

Posted by taxguru on August 15, 2012

Interesting article from Drudge about the number of tax preparers in this country.

When tax complexity puts dinner on the table

Up to 1.2 million tax preparers make a living navigating the labyrinth US tax code for taxpayers. We have more professional tax preparers in the United States than law enforcement officers (765,000) and professional firefighters (310,400) combined.

What I find ironic is the fact that I frequently hear complaints from other tax preparers about the growing number of people who don’t use our services and use the do it yourself software products or online services to prepare their tax returns. Also, with the new stricter regulations on preparers, many are deciding to leave the profession. 

Update: Video of Lou Dobbs on this same topic.
