Fast Forward Academy (Be a Tax Preparer)

Now that 2011 is coming quickly to an end, it means that we’re all going to start thinking about preparing our taxes soon.  They’re normally due to the IRS by April 15th, although you can request an extension.  Do you do your own taxes, or do you pay someone else to prepare them for you?  I’ve found that many of the people I know pay a tax preparer, but we prepare our own taxes each year.  If you’re interested in learning how to become a tax preparer, you can take a tax class online to become a Registered Tax Return Preparer, or RTRP. 

If you pass the IRS exam, you will earn your tax preparer certification which certifies you to prepare income tax returns for other people.  Tax preparer jobs are widely available starting in January so now is the time to take an income tax course.  Don’t wait until the last minute to do your taxes, and if you decide to become a tax preparer, you can check out  You can earn some extra money during tax season, and maybe you’ll like it so much it could become a new career for you.
