National Tax Training

Hey Neighbors!

I am so glad to see all of you today here At the Fence!  I have some really exciting news to share with you.  My oldest son was able to take the National Tax Training Course from the National Tax Training School.  He has really enjoyed this class.  We have been considering signing him up for a local course, so when the Crew Members were offered this opportunity, I jumped at the chance!

He received a HUGE binder filled with his course of study, along with tests that he needed to take and then mail in for grading.  After they have been graded, the tests are mailed back to you.  He has done super, great!  A's so far, other than one test, which he was able to re-take.

Recently he was able to do some of his work online.  He told me he prefers reading the lessons in the binder, but likes doing the tests online.  He seems to retain more when using the binder, but it is easier to take the tests online, plus you receive the results faster.

So far he has completed 10 of the 20 lessons.  He is continuing to work on his course, although the past week has been harder due to us traveling.  Especially since he has been doing some of the driving!  Here is what he does:
1. Studies the materials for the unit.
2. Spends a few minutes of review time.
3. Takes the self examination.
4. Takes the exam itself.
5. Copies the exam and mails it in.

Click here, to see the outline of the course.  When you have completed the National Tax Training School course you will be fully prepared to take the IRS Registered Tax Preparer Exam.  My son is looking forward to taking the exam.

This course is perfect for someone looking to start their own tax preparation business, or just looking to do their own taxes, instead of paying someone else to do them.  My son would like to work with a company for a year or so just to get a feel for it, and then do taxes on his own.

The course itself offers 2 options.  You may choose the Course with 4 years of post graduate support for $795, or there is the option of the Course with 2 years of post graduate support for $495.  Each option also comes with payment plans for your convenience.  They say each Unit takes approx. 8 hours to complete, but you are given one year to actually complete the course.  This means you can take the course at your own pace.

Remember, this is an approved Tax Course.  They have an A+ rating from the BBB.  I believe once he finishes this course he will be ready to take the exam and prepare taxes himself.

What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information.
