The term "tax advisor" and the term "tax preparer" (meaning income tax return preparer) are probably not precisely equivalent, yet the article discusses both without a detailed distinction. These are related and somewhat overlapping concepts. Stay tuned. Famspear 16:54, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Post-script: The article also discusses "practice before the Internal Revenue Service" under Circular 230, which also is a related, overlapping concept. For example, in the United States you could be a "tax advisor" without actually preparing income tax returns. You could be a "tax advisor" without actually representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). You could be an income tax return preparer without being a tax advisor -- and without representing taxpayers before the IRS. Famspear 16:57, 27 December 2006 (UTC)
