Liberty Tax Service Is Registering Students For Fall Tax Preparation Courses

Stocks in this article: TAX

Enrollment is underway for Liberty Tax’s fall income tax preparation classes at locations across the country. Liberty Tax has enhanced its income tax preparation courses to include a focus on IRS registration and accreditation requirements. The company’s tax schools and other trainings have incorporated steps to assist its tax school students who are interested in becoming professional tax preparers, obtaining a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) and meeting new certification requirements from the IRS.

The company’s ten-week tax school helps students learn personal tax-savings advantages and strategies as well as a new skill that may lead to employment. No prior tax experience is necessary to register and take the basic class.

With a tax preparer certification process in place since 2007, Liberty Tax Service took a proactive approach toward internal professional standardization by creating its own innovative three-tier skill certification examination for its preparers. Now that tax preparers will be required to take competency tests, they can receive readiness through Liberty’s classes, and its class offerings from basic through advanced.

“Now is a great time to start the process of learning tax preparation, and following the steps of the certification process as the IRS phases in the new requirements. The tax school training method has been a natural fit for those of any age eager to acquire news skills, earn extra income and explore a new career path or even franchise ownership," remarked John Hewitt, CEO and Founder of Liberty Tax Service.

People who have either obtained or will obtain a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) prior to the start of IRS Competency Exam will have until December 31, 2013 to pass the competency test. Liberty Tax will offer its annual ten week classes starting the week after Labor Day. The classes are open to the public, with no experience is required to register for the basic class.
