Educational Partnerships

Surgent Income Tax School (ITS) partners with numerous career schools, adult education and workforce development programs, colleges, universities, and tax industry vendors nationwide to offer our tax courses and certificate programs, which enable people to become tax preparers. All of our tax courses are written by expert tax professionals who have worked in the field for years and continue to stay current with the tax law changes and updates. We teach practical application enabling the student to begin preparing tax returns and internalize the knowledge after completing the Comprehensive Tax Course, while continuing on to advanced individual and small business courses.

A career as a tax preparer is highly attractive to many because of the flexibility and portability it provides, the job security of knowing people will always need help preparing their tax returns, you can learn and work remotely, and you can earn a certificate very quickly…often in just months!

After successfully completing our Comprehensive Tax Course, the student can begin preparing taxes as a self-employed tax preparer or while working for someone else, possibly as an intern for a tax or CPA firm! Becoming a tax preparer is something that can be done seasonally, part-time…as a stop gap between jobs, or as a side-hustle to earn extra income. Many decide to make tax preparation a full-time, year-round career. There really is so much flexibility in this industry!

Surgent Income Tax School’s Comprehensive Tax Course and CTP® (Chartered Tax Professional) certificate program, which includes the Comprehensive Tax Course, are our most popular offerings in our course catalog for partnerships, but we do have additional programs that also work for your audience – including the IRS Annual Filing Season Program and the Pathway to the Enrolled Agent (SEE Exam).
