Liberty Tax Offers Tax Classes With Emphasis On New IRS Standards

Stocks in this article: TAX

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.
