Did your tax preparer ask for your last pay stub instead of your W-2?

You need a tax preparer that will ask for all your receipt and complete tax record.Your tax record includes all your total income and  tax benefits that you are entitled to. Don’t use a tax preparer that is willing to use your last pay stub rather than use your W-2.


Are you in the habit of signing a blank tax return, so you don’t have to “waste time” with your tax preparer?

If you answer yes to this then you are legally responsible for whatever your tax preparer writes in your tax return, even if it includes anything that can put you in trouble, it has already been endorsed by you.
