I'm currently taking the H&R Block tax course. There are several students I wouldn't trust to do my own taxes. I'm sure there are some CPAs and tax lawyers in town I wouldn't trust, either, if I got to know them. You can't generalize.

At least OR gives a licensing exam you have to pass before you can get paid to prepare taxes. This encourages people who are struggling to drop out early and probably results in a higher average ability of those who end up doing it than other states. But who knows.
