Earn Tax Preparation Credentials and Expand Your Business
With just a little training you could expand your business and your bottom line. Tax preparation will complement your current services nicely. Most of your current clients would appreciate having you prepare their taxes as well as manage their accounting. And becoming a full-service financial provider will attract more new clients.Unfortunately, not all tax preparers are created equal. And currently no licensing is required to become a paid tax preparer. Uncle Jo who was good at math can prepare all his nieces and nephews taxes without recourse. Along with Uncle Jo there are fraudulent “tax preparers” who promise higher returns by committing tax fraud; they then skip town and leave their clients to deal with IRS audits. Also in the mix are hard-working, legitimate tax preparers who run their own businesses.While Congress considers passing legislation that will require all tax preparers to become licensed, tax payers become wearier of tax preparers without any credentials. In fact, the IRS warns, “While most preparers provide excellent service to their clients, the IRS urges taxpayers to be very careful when choosing a tax preparer. Taxpayers should be as careful as they would be in choosing a doctor or a lawyer. It is important to know that even if someone else prepares a tax return, the taxpayer is ultimately responsible for all the information on the tax return.”So how do you put clients and potentials clients at ease? By earning a professional designation that demonstrates tax preparation proficiency and competency.
