Comprehensive Income Tax Preparation

ProTrain Online


As we struggle with managing the elusive resource of "time", coupled with ever changing tax laws, delegation of tax preparation becomes a higher priority. Many people are turning to professional tax preparers for assistance.

E-filing, automation and even demographic changes have also created new opportunities in the tax preparation industry. Many people with spare time available during tax season - including early retirees, homemakers, career changers, college students and moonlighting professionals - are learning to meet this growing demand through income tax courses developed by The Income Tax School.

If you are an enrolled agent, accountant, lawyer, financial planner, business owner, experienced tax preparer, or just interested in increasing your tax knowledge, the Advanced Course will enable you to prepare more complex individual tax returns. This Course provides the critical education and knowledge, which make the graduates more competent and successful than their competitors. Students normally enroll in this Course after completing the 10-week Comprehensive Income Tax Class and working at least one season as a tax preparer.

  • Comprehensive Income Tax Course Manual, by Peoples Income Tax
