Liberty Tax’s Fall Tax Classes May Offer Entry Into The Tax Industry

Liberty Tax (NASDAQ:TAX) invites the public to learn tax preparation and work toward IRS registration in its fall tax classes at convenient locations across the country and online. With job growth still weak, and the unemployment rate still hovering around 8.3 percent, many job seekers may be exploring educational opportunities that can help them develop an extra marketable skill. Liberty Tax is planning to staff up at its offices by tax season and fill positions including tax preparers, office managers, office staff, and marketers.

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 and obtaining a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) from the IRS. The company’s ten-week tax school offers the chance to explore personal tax-savings advantages and acquire a new hands-on skill that may lead to certification and flexible employment opportunities in the tax industry. No previous tax preparation experience is required to enroll in the tax course.

“Anyone and everyone can take our classes. The main requirement is the willingness to learn individual tax preparation, and apply the tax code to many situations. It’s a great way to catch up on the latest tax changes and life changes that affect one’s individual taxes,” commented John Hewitt, CEO of Liberty Tax Service.

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