So just to clarify for those of us who want to see things in black and white, the Third Party Designee box on page 2 of the 1040 should be NO if the preparer is the third party designee. The question before the yes/no boxes ask if you want someone OTHER THAN the preparer to be the designee. If you want the preparer to be the designee, check NO.
