The jobs command respect and draw veterans who are more likely to stand up to pressure from their employers and won't risk losing their "ticket" - the F designee status - by cutting corners, people in the industry say.
agents with whom they are dealing cannot bind the United States to transfer any particular amount of sharing because the ultimate decision rests with the Attorney General and the Secretary of State, or their designees.
The checkbox designee would not be able to speak or correspond in response to an Underreporter issue, Examination inquiry, Appeals proceeding or collection notice unless Form 2848, Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative, was also filed.
Once the new initiative is implemented, a taxpayer's designee will be permitted to speak directly to IRS Customer Service Representatives over the phone to provide requested information and answer questions.
According to IR-2000-23, taxpayers can identify through a checkbox on all series of Form 1040 returns (except Telefile), an individual paid preparer to serve as a designee to resolve processing-related matters.
