Choosing a Tax Preparer
It is important to find a tax preparer with the knowledge and experience to prepare your returns correctly.
The Minnesota Department of Revenue does not require tax preparers to be licensed, but we do expect them to follow standards of ethics and conduct. We may take action when they do not.
To find a current list of:
- Disciplined preparers, see Tax Preparers Subject to Sanctions
- Preparers who are not authorized to represent you before the department, see Who Can Represent You
Whether or not a preparer is on one of these lists, you are ultimately responsible for your tax return. Choose a preparer carefully.
To find preparers with professional credentials or other qualifications recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), see the IRS Directory of Federal Tax Return Preparers.
To report an unprofessional preparer to the department, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 651-296-3781 or 1-800-652-9094 (toll-free).
