None of the classes have prerequisites or require education or training in tax preparation beforehand, explains Liberty Tax. These classes can help the individual do his own taxes and even start a new career doing tax preparation for others. Courses cover required forms, how to use deductions and schedules, and basic tax filing information. Through these courses, the student learns how to prepare taxes both online and manually on paper.
As of 2015, the least expensive and quickest online tax course is the online rapid course, which is held in December, states Liberty Tax. This course helps someone who wants to prepare a tax return and learn as quickly as possible. It teaches simple tax laws regarding preparing taxes. The online basic income tax course is offered in the evenings starting in August on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This goes more in-depth into tax preparation than the rapid course. There are also replays of the course for people who want to revisit some of the lessons. Other courses include the online Oregon 80-hour basic income tax course and the online California 60-hour qualifying education course. Advanced online courses are also provided by Liberty Tax, teaching students to prepare business taxes. These courses cover estates and the handling of trusts and gifts.Learn more about Taxes
