A boon for honest accountants

The IRS is proposing new rules which would allow accountants to sell their customers’ returns to data brokers. Some are calling this an “IRS privacy nightmare”, while I am going to call this a non-issue, and or a boon for honest accountants.

First, the customer has to sign an authorization form allowing the sharing selling of this data. Unless you are a moron, and/or susceptible to the sales pitch of a chain tax preparer, this isn’t going to happen. I also believe that pressuring customers and/or using deceptive means to get these authorizations is going to rear its ugly head, and good, honest, hardworking independent accountants are going to wind up with a lot of extra business as a result.
