I recently received the Advanced II Tax Course and have jumped right into it. This time I would really like to complete two chapters or more per week which means that I should be done and moving on to the small business courses in about 5 weeks. I have just two courses left after my current one so this will ensure that I am adequately prepared for next year’s tax season. You can technically start preparing typical tax returns after just the Comprehensive Tax Course, but the more services you can provide, the more you can assist your clients, and the more revenue streams you open up. So far the knowledge I have gained through these courses has greatly improved my ability to answer and research tax related questions. Even when I don’t know the answer, I know where to look. I’m looking forward to completing the individual tax return section of this certification and jumping into the small business side of things.
