This New Skill Set May Mean an Extra Paycheck or Even an Additional Tax Refund
Virginia Beach, VA (Vocus/PRWEB ) September 23, 2009 -- Payday never comes often enough, especially with our economy just starting to rebound from a recession. A recent CareerBuilder survey cited that 61 percent of workers are living paycheck-to-paycheck. The survey also reveals that one in ten workers is moonlighting with a second job.
Liberty Tax Service offers a unique instructional opportunity that enables students to become empowered with greater tax knowledge through fall tax preparation courses. Learning the latest tax changes and honing one's tax preparation skills can mean an extra paycheck and more tax savings. Tax school graduates can apply for flexible tax season employment as tax preparers and employees with Liberty Tax. Students can become more cognizant of all tax breaks that they can legitimately claim, and may become diligent about keeping better records of deductible tax expenses.
"Our goal is to provide a practical tax school educational opportunity for our students, so we welcome those into our classes with little or no previous tax experience," remarked John Hewitt, Founder and CEO of Liberty Tax Service. "Our classes also cover recent tax changes due to The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Students may even realize they have not claimed deductions they are eligible for, and can amend past returns within three years of filing to claim additional refund amounts."
During the basic income tax preparation course, students apply the tax code to complete paper tax forms, and then advance to prepare returns using computer applications. Instructors cover all schedules, credits and forms that can be filed with an individual tax return. There's no tuition charge for tax school, but there is a minimal charge for books and supplies. Day and night courses are offered, and courses start throughout the fall months.
Liberty Tax Service plans to have 500 new offices in operation for the next tax season, and will be hiring to fill positions for the upcoming season. The company offers a unique Hispanic marketing and outreach program, and is actively recruiting bilingual tax school students and employees.
