If the person who does my taxes does not have a PTIN can I still have them do my tax return?
Tax Professional Answers
But there are exceptions. If an employee as part of her duties is preparing her employers' tax return, then the employee does not need a PTIN. Also if the tax preparer is submitting to the IRS forms like, W-2s, Form SS-4, Power of Attorney, etc., then they do not need a PTIN.
For more information regarding who needs to have a PTIN, please refer to the U.S. federal government website, irs.gov.
The answer said Yes. However, if the person preparing the return is being paid, they do needa PTIN. So the answer should be, No they should not prepare the return.
