Information About IRC 7216 Consent Forms


New regulations under Internal Revenue Code Section 7216, Disclosure or Use of Tax Information by Preparers of Returns, became effective January 1, 2009.  These new regulations updated previous regulations that had been substantially unchanged for nearly three decades, giving taxpayers greater control over their personal tax return information.  The statute limits tax return preparers’ use and disclosure of information obtained during the return preparation process to activities directly related to the preparation of the return.  The regulations describe how preparers, with the informed, express written consent of taxpayers, may use or disclose return information for other purposes.  The regulations also describe specific and limited exceptions that allow a preparer to use or disclose return information without the consent of taxpayers.  To view these regulations in more detail please visit
