    Go here and tell me what you think.

    They are a correspondence school for current and subsequent tax codes. I am thinking about doing it, but wonder if there is anybody who has, and what his/her experience has/had been.

    Thanks ahead of time...

    For $650 bucks I'd pass. I'm sure all the necessary material is available for free through the IRS and/or a public library. Any of the tax software available might teach one as much as studying books......it's how I learned double enrty accounting [​IMG]

    I agree with your comment about the IRS/library. When my wife and I moved into our first home, I spent days reading IRS Pubs. finding out what I could and could not claim. I had never even seen an itemized deduction till then, and it was an eye opener. I was also thinking that it might be a nice supplemental income as a tax preparer. I think that it is most helpful since they send you materials and you actually fill out the tax forms for the sample taxpayer, and they tell you what you did wrong. This way you see what goes on without having to go online every time you need an example from the IRS.

    Just seemed ???fishy?? Maybe I'm just a tad cynical when someone offers to send you materials for a good deal of up front money so you can start your own business.....kinda like the old "stuff envelopes and home in your spare time and earn extra money".

    IIRC, places like H&R block will train you to do tax work then hire you for the season. I'd still just get a Turbo Tax program (or the like) and learn from its input.

    Good luck in whatever endeavor you decide to persue.

    Then what do you think of colleges that charge you thousands of dollars in the hopes you might be able to get a job someday?

    I guess people shouldn't be allowed to sell educational books, either. [​IMG]

    Had you read the context correctly you'd know that's not my criticism.

    What then was your criticism? Maybe you could clarify it for us.
