Bob Lockwood has earned the designation of Accredited Tax Preparer issued by the Accreditation Council for Accountancy and Taxation, recognized as such by the IRS.
The IRS intended to “vet” all tax preparers thru its Registered Tax Preparer Program (RTRP); however, a judge sidelined that effort in Loving v. IRS, where the judge found that tax return preparation is not “presenting a case” before the IRS. In Bob’s opinion, this is the most absurd position imaginable; a single parent filing “Single” or “Head of Household”; a couple filing “Married” or “Married filing Separate”; what method is chosen to deduct education expenses; Tuition & Fees; Lifetime Learning; American Opportunity; on and on! After the IRS was squashed with mandatory vetting, it established a voluntary vetting, which induced Bob to qualify as an Accredited Tax Preparer and maintain his Continuing Professional Education credits, which are registered with the IRS.
