Billboards that Say, “What If My Tax Preparer is Not Legal?” Well, I _Completely_ Misunderstood This Ad Campaign

To me, it meant what if your tax preparer got caught overstaying his visa and then got deported and then who the hell would defend your return come audit time and that’s why you ought to hire a fully-fledged ‘Murican to help you with your taxes.

I’m srsly.

But it turns out that it’s just a rent-seeking trade guild.

I’ll tell you, I know a little bit about how people get into trouble with such alphabet soups as the IRS, the BOE and the FTB. (Oh man, if an auditor asks a bar owner why he why buys 200 kegs a month but only sells 50, you know, officially, he’ll start talking about employee theft and spoilage and, gee, look at all that beer in the lines, well that’s probably 100 keg’s worth right there.)

So that’s real life.

But I aint ever met anybody who needed to worry about, “What If My Tax Preparer is Not Legal?”

Just saying.
