A Lucrative Service Addition: Tax Preparation


You’re probably starting to prepare for tax season yourself, at least when it comes to your own tax liability.  But what if you were able to add tax preparation services to your menu?  Once trained, you could begin earning as much as you do in one year as a bookkeeper in the four short months that comprise tax season.  Does that sound like a lucrative business move?  Most definitely!

Increase Your Options and Your Earning Potential

Becoming a tax preparer opens up countless career options.  You could supplement your current income with part-time work in the evenings or on the weekends.  You could turn your accounting/bookkeeping practice into a one-stop financial shop by adding tax preparation to your services.  Or you could replace your full-time income by becoming a Professional Tax Preparer.  Whichever option appeals to you, the training necessary to become a tax preparer isn’t as long and painful as you might expect.  Universal Accounting Center has made it easy.

Our newly updated program includes the following:

  • Informative video instruction
  • Full 1040 training
  • Full business return (1065, 1120, 1120S) training
  • One Year Follow-up Support from expert tax preparers

Many programs will lecture you on tax law and preparation practices, but Universal’s program is much more effective because it provides you with the hands-on practice that will perfect your skills.  Theory is taught as guiding principles, but the focus is on actually doing taxes to gain proficiency.

The PTP course consists of 20 hours of video training. Most tax preparation courses include books and some worksheets. Our training uses engaging and entertaining tax preparers who give practical advice on tax issues; they also provide real-world solutions that will give you the edge in productivity and profitability. Our instructors know what challenges you will face because they have been there themselves.

To be honest, you don’t need a Professional Tax Preparer designation to prepare taxes.  Currently, there are no qualifications for any individual to complete tax returns.  But in today’s world of complex tax laws and increasing tax fraud occurrences, taxpayers are looking for specialists with credentials.  It affords clients peace of mind to know that the individual they’re working with is qualified and knowledgeable.  It also affords the tax preparer peace of mind to know they’ve been properly trained.  Universal recognizes the value of professional certification and awards the Professional Tax Preparer designation to those who pass the final exam with a score of 90% or higher.

Income from a tax preparation business peaks during the first four months of the year. Many professional tax preparers charge $100 per hour or more, enabling them to work 4 to 6 months per year and semi-retire the rest of the year. Would you be interested in increasing your income by that much?  By adding tax preparation services to your menu, you’ll increase your bottom line significantly which could enable you to ride out the recession in comfort and ease.  If practically every adult must pay taxes, tax preparers not only have the largest potential client base of any profession around, they also enjoy serious job security.  Tax preparation is a recession-proof occupation.
