from an email sent by the Board of Tax Practitioners

Dear Licensees,

The Board of Tax Practitioners often receives calls from consumers asking if we know of a tax preparation business that offers services in languages other than English. The Agency is developing a list of tax preparation businesses that offer such services.
If your business offers tax preparation services in other languages, and you would like to be included on this list, please provide the following information:

  • Name of the business
  • City the business is located
  • Contact person
  • Telephone number of business
