The Senate Finance Committee plans to hold a hearing next Tuesday to discuss how to protect taxpayers from incompetent and unethical tax return preparers.

The hearing will be led by the committee’s new chairman, Senator Ron Wyden, D-Ore., who took over after the departure of former Senator Max Baucus, D-Mont., who was recently confirmed as ambassador to China.
