36.1 PBS NewsHour Weekend Each year about 42 million tax returns - nearly one-third of all filed - are prepared by tax professionals who are un-accredited and unregulated by the IRS. After a plan to regulate these tax preparers was struck down by a federal court last year, there's more regulation on hairdressers than there is on tax preparers in most of the country.
