How to Stand Out On LinkedIn As A Tax Preparer

LinkedIn just added a feature that will help our graduates stand out more to their contacts and potential clients: The “Add to Profile Button”.

Now, with the click of a button, you can add your Income Tax School Chartered Tax Advisor, Chartered Tax School Consultant, or Chartered Tax School Professional Certification to your LinkedIn Profile!


Why Is This Important?

As a tax professional, unless you are an Enrolled Agent, there are not many ways to show potential clients that you have the qualifications needed to properly prepare their taxes.

There’s the IRS Annual Filing Season Certificate. This is to be included on the IRS National Database of certified preparers. If you’ve been through any of our Charted Tax School Courses you know that you’ve taken way more education than the tax preparer who took the AFTR.

Now you can display the Chartered Tax Professional Badge on your LinkedIn profile (which acts as your CV anyways), for all of the world (and potentials clients) to see.

  • Prepare more complicated tax returns, and
  • Increase your revenue by charging higher fees for more complex tax returns.
