Tax Preparers will be reading through financial documents and filling out forms. They request specific forms from the IRS and use them to submit tax returns for their clients. Tax Preparers may also talk with their clients in person to learn more about their recordkeeping practices and possible opportunities for write-offs. To get larger returns for their clients, Tax Preparers review tax laws to find tax credits and exemptions. They sign tax forms on behalf of their client and mail them to the IRS, then update their clients on the status of their return.
Tax Preparer should have at least a high school diploma or GED and completed coursework in tax preparation, accounting, bookkeeping, business finance, and other relevant topics. Roles that only handle simple tax returns may only require minimum education and on-the-job training. Single corporations or roles with more complex tax return duties may require an associate's or bachelor’s degree in accounting, finance, or another relevant field. Previous training with federal, state, and local tax laws may be demonstrated with completed federal and/or state examination and certification or licensure.
