Crunching The Numbers

Numbers and organization are two key components to a tax preparation business. If you have these skills, then you can learn how to start a tax preparation business from your home or a small office.

If you haven't worked for a tax company before, then you might need a little training before starting your own business. Most tax offices offer courses over a few weeks so that you can learn the basics. You will learn all about the forms that are used as well as tax deductions and credits. Sometimes, the IRS will offer courses that are free, but many of the offices will charge you a small fee for the books that are used. After you are comfortable with the materials, you need to find out about any licenses that you need for your business and how to register the business name. You need an area that has plenty of space for a desk and file cabinet as you will likely keep the files of your clients until the next year. Some of the things that you will need include a computer, plenty of paper, envelopes and labels. A software program is a good idea to help you with preparations if you don't want to do everything by hand on the forms. Set a schedule for your clients to come to the office, and try to give plenty of time between each person so that you can address any concerns.
