Why Become a Tax Preparer?
Helping people deal with their taxes is very rewarding and gratifying. Tax preparers use their knowledge of federal and state taxes to ensure that their clients receive the correct tax refund or pay the correct amount of tax.

The tax preparation business is unusual because it provides a service to people that legally every American is required to do: file an income tax return. Because it is required, tax preparation tends to be recession resistant.

Did you know that 70% of the tax returns prepared professionally in the United States are prepared by independent tax preparers, not the national tax preparation franchise chains. The vast majority of these tax preparers are small businesses. Many are "Mom & Pop" outfits.

The term "Become a Tax Preparer" can mean different things to different people:

Some people who say they want to "become a tax preparer" mean that they'd like to open a tax office of a national tax preparation franchise. You can learn more about the pros and cons of opening a tax office of a national tax preparation franchise by visiting our web page Tax Franchises - Myths vs. Facts.

Other people who say they want to "become a tax preparer" mean that they'd like to get a job at the tax preparation office on Main Street in their home town. If that is the case, we suggest that you go visit the owner of that tax preparation business. Introduce yourself and explain that you'd like to become one of his tax preparers.

Still other people who say they want to "become a tax preparer" mean that they'd like to get their licenses and training and open an independent tax preparation office, either a lucrative home-based business, or one at a brick and mortar commercial location. If this is what you are looking for, you're at the right place.

Starting your own tax preparation business for independence, financial freedom and more is a great idea. Many people are looking to supplement their income in order to maintain their current lifestyles. A home-based tax preparation business can supplement your income, pay the bills, enable you to save for retirement, and more. Starting your own home-based tax preparation business is easier than you think. Many tax preparers start with a home office until their tax preparation business grows and they can afford to rent office space. Generally, all you'll need is a computer, a phone line, and a tax software program.
