When secretaries(no ptin) answer tax preparers phone, are they allowed to answer tax questions? Also can they change names address etc on the compter without having ptin or licensed? Cam they change deductions etc? My partner seems and I disagree on what she can and cannot do. Help

At the parish, my secretary takes care of me and I take care of the clients.

Ztom, all disputes can be settled by THE BIBLE:

"Now as they went on their way, he entered a certain village, where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. She had a sister named Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to what he was saying. But Martha was distracted by her many tasks; so she came to him and asked, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her then to help me." But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her" (Luke 10:38-42).

Sounds like your partner may be getting the "better part" of this secretary. Does his wife know about this?

The answer is that if they are completing substantially all of the taxpayer's return, they must have a PTIN. Correcting a misspelled name or an incorrect address would be fine.
