PBS Newshour Weekend

Season 1, Episode 61 of 99

Each year about 42 million tax returns - nearly one-third of all filed - are prepared by tax professionals who are un-accredited and unregulated by the IRS. After a plan to regulate these tax preparers was struck down by a federal court last year, there's more regulation on hairdressers than there is on tax preparers in most of the country. Proponents of regulating these preparers say this leaves low-income taxpayers, who depend on benefits in the tax code, particularly vulnerable. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.
