Hi Everyone,

I have a PTIN only because on rare occasions I have to sign a 941.  I see the IRS is requiring data breach insurance and a written plan.  Since I don't efile tax returns, is it necessary for me to have this type of insurance?  

Thanks for your feedback.

 

Vicki

If you are signing 941 forms for someone else, you need a power of attorney.

Check with your malpractice insurance provider to see if you are already covered for data breach.  See https://www.irs.gov/individuals/data-theft-information-for-tax-professionals which contains IRS recommendations but I see nothing about requiring data breach insurnace.
