Paid preparer authorization.
Beginning with your return for 2000, you can check a box and
authorize the IRS to discuss your tax return with the paid preparer
who signed it. If you check the "Yes" box in the signature area
of your return, the IRS can call your paid preparer to answer any
questions that may arise during the processing of your return. Also,
you are authorizing your paid preparer to perform certain actions. See
your income tax package for details.
