Acquiring Tax Preparation Skills Can Lead to Employment in the Tax Industry

(Virginia Beach, VA)  Taxpayers resolving to save more on their taxes in 2012 or make a new career move can learn to prepare taxes during Liberty Tax’s free January “Rapid Tax Classes.”  No prior tax experience is necessary to register and take the class.  Liberty Tax Service strives to help their students learn more about taxes: whether it’s to save money on their own returns, or to improve their skill sets for employment.  Tax school can launch new job opportunities for many who take tax classes, as Liberty Tax will hire over 60,000 employees including tax preparers, administrative workers, marketers and wavers in early 2012.    

“The tax industry has over one million employees, and our company is definitely in the hiring mode,” says John T. Hewitt, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Liberty Tax Service.    

The curriculum is designed to cover the fundamentals of basic income tax preparation.  Lessons are structured to cover the latest tax changes, credits and forms that can be filed with an individual tax return.   

Enrollment is underway for the week-long comprehensive basic income tax courses offered by Liberty Tax Service.  Most “Rapid Tax Classes” are held during weekdays the  first, second, and third weeks of January for those interested in an accelerated class that will teach the very basics of tax preparation.
