strategies as well as a new skill that may lead to employment. No prior tax experience is necessary
to register and take the basic class.

process in place since 2007, Liberty Tax Service took a proactive approach toward
internal professional standardization by creating its own innovative three-tier skill certification
examination for its preparers. Now that
tax preparers will be required to take competency tests, they can receive readiness through Liberty’s classes,
and its class offerings from basic through advanced.

certification process as the IRS phases in the new requirements. The tax school training method has been
a natural fit for those of any age eager to acquire news skills, earn extra
income and explore a new career path or
