Liberty Tax Service is Ready For Internal Tax Preparer Certification Program

Its Internal Tax Preparer Certification Program Has Been in Place Since 2007

Virginia Beach, VA (Vocus/PRWEB ) -- With a tax preparer certification process in place since 2007, Liberty Tax Service is poised for stricter IRS standards on tax preparers that may take effect in the next few years. Liberty Tax took a proactive approach toward professional standardization, customer satisfaction and maintaining the integrity of the Liberty Tax brand by creating its own innovation three-tier skill examination for its preparers.

The IRS has just announced plans to step up its monitoring of the tax preparation industry with new registration, testing and continuing education standards for tax preparers that will be phased in during the next few years. The first step the IRS will take is to send out 10,000 letters to tax preparers "among those with large volumes of specific tax returns where the IRS typically sees frequent errors."

"Our initial goal is to have every tax return prepared by a certified preparer," said John Hewitt, CEO and Founder of Liberty Tax Service. "Ultimately, the tax industry will benefit from measures that guarantee the most credible practices for the consumer, and a collaborative effort to fight fraud."

Liberty Tax tapped resources within its corporate tax and software department, and solicited feedback from franchisees and management to develop its Web-based examination that measure skills of entry and more seasoned preparers. In addition, the examination is a test of the training materials and teaching methods. Since its inception, Liberty Tax Service has complied with states such as Maryland, Oregon and California that have tax preparer standards in place in order to operate and hold tax schools for the public.
