Who Requires the Tax Preparer Bond and Why Is It Needed?

Tax Preparers conducting business in California are required to furnish a surety bond as required by the California Tax Education Council (CTEC) in a coverage amount of $5,000. The bond is mandated as part of the tax preparer registration process and the surety bond is for the benefit of any person who brings a valid action against the Tax Preparer for financial damages due to unethical behavior or violations of Section 22251 of the California Business and Profession Code or the provisions of the Division 8, Chapter 14 of the code. A claim may be filed against the surety bond if the Tax Preparer causes damages resulting from misstatement, misrepresentation, dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or any unlawful act or omission while acting within the scope of professional duty as a Tax Preparer.
