Liberty Tax Service’s Tax Classes Start Soon

Stocks in this article: TAX

Proactive consumers can learn the practical skill of tax preparation at Liberty Tax Service this fall that can lead to discovering additional deductions and tax savings, or even lead to a new career in the tax industry. The annual price taxpayers pay for overlooking legitimate tax deductions and missing other tax breaks is a staggering $1 billion dollars, according to the General Accounting Office. Filing an amended return can allow taxpayers to claim overpayments for overlooking deductions and credits for up to three years.

“Students have the opportunity to review their own tax situations and how recent life changes may impact their next tax return,” said John Hewitt, CEO and Founder of Liberty Tax Service. “They may realize that they have overlooked a legitimate deduction on their return year after year. It’s also a great first step to becoming a registered tax preparer, and acquiring the latest industry credentials imposed by the IRS.”

Liberty Tax is instructing their tax school students on how to acquire the new credentials and meet the requirements that the IRS is phasing in, and the steps to take to obtain a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) from the IRS. Since no prior tax experience is necessary to enroll, students can enter tax school from any background, and take advantage of flexible scheduling. Students gain tax knowledge by applying the tax code to various situations to prepare returns with the appropriate schedules, credits and deductions applicable to individual taxation. The course covers tax topics that range from filing small business taxes on a Schedule C to the tax implications of buying and selling a home.

Liberty Tax offers over 11,000 class locations as well as an online class option. September 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.
