Can I sue a tax preparation company if they are responsible for mistakes?
In order to establish a malpractice suit against a tax preparer you will have to be able to prove two claims: (1) the tax professional failed to meet minimum professional standards and (2) that you have suffered damages. Always keep in mind that you are ultimately responsible for the tax liability.
