Ann, an accountant, prepares a tax return for a client, Beta Sales Company. Carl, who is not an accountant, prepares a tax return for Dina's business, Delta Services. Can an accountant who prepares a tax return for a client be liable for any false statements in the return? Can a person who is not an accountant and who prepares a tax return for someone else be held liable for any false statements in the return?
