Liberty Tax Offers Tax Classes with Emphasis on New IRS Standards
Learning to Prepare Taxes Can Mean Entry into the Tax Industry
(Virginia Beach, VA) Liberty
Tax Service offers over 11,000 fall online and in-store tax preparation
classes across the country that can help its students learn or refresh a
marketable skill that’s in demand. Taking the ten-week classes can also provide
a fresh consumer perspective of how to save money on one’s own tax return in a
tight economy where every little bit helps.
The company’s instruction includes how to become a
registered tax preparer with the IRS, receive a Preparer
Tax Identification Number (PTIN) from the IRS, and continue
professional development in accordance with new IRS standards. The certainty of
an ever-changing and confusing income tax code provides a million people
employment in the tax industry each year. Over 60% of consumers opt for
professional help to have their returns prepared.
“There’s no down side to taking the class. It may pay off
with new job opportunities and a bonus of tax savings,” said John Hewitt, CEO
and Founder of Liberty Tax Service. “Many
people may make the same mistakes year after year on their returns, often
overlooking a tax advantage multiple times. After completing the class,
students can apply for seasonal employment with Liberty Tax Service.”
The curriculum engages students in practical application of
the tax code to prepare returns, and covers the schedules, credits and forms
used to file individual returns.
The company’s basic income tax preparation classes educate
the public about the latest tax changes, and every facet of individual income
tax preparation. No prior tax experience
is necessary to enroll and take the class, and students are under no obligation
to Liberty Tax.
Class schedules are flexible with day or evening
classes available twice a week for ten weeks. There’s a minimal charge for
books and supplies. Liberty Tax
Service is actively recruiting
bilingual tax school students. To learn more about
