Last year I decided that it was time to learn something while looking for a job. I signed up for the Liberty Tax Service course since it was cheaper than H&R block. The course lasted 10 weeks, and I definitely took more away from the class than I thought! What I did not know, though, was that Liberty hires from those who take their class.
This year I will not only be preparing taxes for other people (scary!) but also for myself, saving me hundreds of dollars from having someone else prepare them for me. I encourage anyone curious about taxes to sign up for one of Liberty's courses in the fall (they offer day and night classes twice a week for a few hours each class).
