Tax Preparation businesses are required to prepare and submit a Disclosure Form pursuant to Municipal Code 4-44-030. Completed Disclosure Forms must be emailed to BACPtaxdisclosure@cityofchicago.org. BACP will only accept Disclosure Forms at this email address.
On March 14, 2012, the City of Chicago passed ordinance 4-44 governing tax preparation services. The ordinance strengthens protections for consumers and requires tax preparers to provide customers with two documents prior to providing any services:
(2) a "Disclosure Form," which describes and lists the tax preparer's cost of services in compliance with ordinance 4-44-030.
As the tax season begins, tax preparers must come into compliance with the requirements set forth in the Municipal Code of Chicago. The ordinance is available to be viewed HERE.
 See definition of "Tax preparer" in Municipal Code 4-44-010.
