The Internal Revenue Service launched a new helpful tool for tax preparers this week to help locate tax preparers in an online directory. The directory includes agents, CPAs, attorneys and  others that have completed requirements for filing taxes for the current filing season.  All of those listed have a Preparer Tax Identification Number for the 2015 tax year. One can search through the directory using the name, city, state, and zip code of the featured tax preparers.
