Franchise Tax Board participates in “Taxpayer Beware” podcast February 2021 Tax News

We will participate in the California Tax Education Council’s (CTEC) new podcast called “Taxpayer Beware” launching February 8. CTEC created the podcast to help educate taxpayers about how to find a California approved tax professional and avoid fraud.

CTEC will promote multiple podcast episodes during the 2021 tax season. Two episodes will focus on tax preparers who do not sign client tax returns, also known as ‘ghost’ tax preparers.

The two part episode titled, “The Scary Truth about Ghost Tax Preparers,” will provide testimonials from CTEC board members about issues clients have faced with ghost tax preparers. Our public affairs, as well as our Compliance and Discovery Section for CTEC, will provide insight on enforcement efforts and scams taxpayers should watch out for.
