Do you know if your preparer is legitimate?
    There are clues.

    If you pay anyone to prepare your return, they MUST have a PTIN
    (Preparer Tax Identification Number).

    The PTIN is formatted as P00000000
    an eight digit number preceded by the letter "P".

    If you suspect your preparer was not a legitimate paid preparer,
    take a look and see if they put their PTIN on the return.

    Click on the following links to see where the PTIN is located.
