I’m buying a course on behalf of someone else, what should I do?

For business owners operating their own tax school who wish to license our courses for their students: email customercare@theincometaxschool.com or call 1-800-984-1040.

Many customers come to us and are buying a course or seminar for someone else. They could be buying the course for their spouse, or a business owner purchasing for an employee(s), or an employee signing up for a course that their employer is paying for. In those cases, use the following steps:

  1. Select your course(s)
  2. Proceed to checkout
  3. Fill the billing address and payment fields with the information of the person paying for the course.
  4. In the Additional Comments section: enter the names and emails of the person(s) taking the course(s)

Jane puts both the Comprehensive course and the CTP Program in her cart and proceeds to checkout. Jane enters her information for the Name, Email, Billing Address, and credit card info, then specifies “Megan Smith – Comprehensive course. Email: megan@example.com, Jeff Jones – CTP Program. Email: jeff@example.com” in the Additional Comments section.

Jane will receive a receipt of purchase by email and will be given login credentials of her own by default. Our school administrators will then manually create student accounts for Megan and Jeff and add their respective courses to their accounts. Please allow up to 2 business days for this to take place.

  1. Susan

    I was looking for CE tax classes on the internet when The Income Tax School came up. I clicked and looked at everything. There was the $199.00 Unlimited package. 38 classes, 1 year to complete, seemed like a lot for that price. So just to be sure there were no strings”, plus, I decided to see if anyone worked over the weekend, I sent an email…to my surprise the email reply came..yes, all 38 courses for $199. That is correct. (Thank you Barry B.) I placed my order for the $199.00 unlimited package on Saturday, Aug 24,2013. Then I thought, I should have waited until Monday. So I called, my call was answered on the 1st ring…I asked how long it would take for my payment to clear, (I was concerned about losing 2-3 days for clearance). The gentleman said let me see if I can expedite this for you. The next morning (4:30 AM HST) there was my sign in info and I was able to begin. I have taken many CE courses over the years. This is the best service I have gotten from any company I have been involved with. Thank you! I need not look any further for help. Your company is my company from now on.”
