Become a Bookkeeper in as Little as 5 Months

The Income Tax School partners with Penn Foster, a leader in education since 1890, to offer their Bookkeeping Program

Bookkeeping is a perfect complementary business to tax preparation. It promotes year-round income, which can help offset the seasonality of tax preparation revenue. Some businesses may need bookkeeping help prior to tax filing. This puts tax preparers in position to capitalize on that service offering for their clients. Conversely, tax preparers may also acquire bookkeeping clients that need tax help.

Tax preparers that understand how clients’ financials interact with the tax return are in a better position to prepare the return and give tax advice to the business owner. It is also a good practice for bookkeepers to know what is needed on a tax return so that the books are set up appropriately. This creates a smooth tax season for all involved.

Becoming a bookkeeper requires certification and bookkeeping knowledge, which may be acquired by taking a program such as the one offered by Penn Foster.
