Oregon Tax License Requirements

California and Oregon are currently the only states in the Nation that require tax preparers to be licensed and meet professional tax education requirements. Maryland is due to follow this procedure next year along with many other states. In addition, Federal tax regulations are being proposed that will require the IRS to license tax preparers nationwide.
