Exclusive Tax Preparers Professional Liability Insurance Program
Tax Preparers Overview


Tax preparers, including those who do some bookkeeping, will find an exceptional value on Errors & Omissions insurance through the American Tax Preparers Purchasing Group (ATP). The ATP was formed in 1981 to allow tax preparers to purchase individual Professional Liability policies at group rates. Target Professional Programs was chosen to administer the Program in 1996, and The Hartford has provided coverage since 1991.

Target’s Tax Preparers Professional Liability Insurance Program is endorsed by the National Society of Tax Professionals (NSTP).
