Beginner Tax Preparer Challenge of the Day: Maximize Your Client’s Work-Related Deductions without Exposing Your Client to Undue Risk
By Tim Frye
As a tax preparer, you must strive at all times to maximize your client's tax deductions—within the bounds of the tax laws administered by the IRS. The true measure of a tax preparer's utility really comes down to you accessing all the available and legitimate deductions a client may have.
Any shaky preparer can punch random, fat, questionable deduction numbers into a 1040 and reach a favorable conclusion for the client. However, this flippant approach will not leave the client comfortable and free from the IRS' ever-expanding eye of scrutiny. For the beginner tax preparer, striking this delicate balance can be challenging to say the least; that’s why we teach this balancing skill extensively in Pronto Tax Class.
In this article, we’ll give you a few tips for maximizing your client's work-related write-offs without sacrificing your integrity or exposing the client to undue scrutiny from our friends at the Internal Revenue Service.
Do Any Tax Companies Pay You to Take a Tax Class?
If you take a tax course to become a tax preparer (such as Pronto Tax Class), do you ever get paid training to take the class? This is the kind of question that a potential new tax preparer might ask if he or she is thinking about working at one of the seasonal tax preparation chains. The answer is that, as of now, no tax course will pay you to take the actual course.
But at some point that may change and it may become possible to get paid to go to tax class to become a tax preparer.
