The Chartered Tax Professional Online Certificate Program will teach you to prepare tax returns for individuals, small business corporations, partnerships, and sole proprietorships.

After successfully finishing just the first two modules in the Chartered Tax Professional Certificate Program, you'll be qualified to prepare individual tax returns for almost all U.S. taxpayers. This online certificate program is offered in partnership with major colleges, universities, and other accredited education providers.
The Chartered Tax Professional Certificate Program offers a unique opportunity for students to participate in an internship program. Through this program, selected students may work on a trial basis for tax preparation firms or for CPA and law firms that provide tax services.

A high school diploma or equivalent is a prerequisite for this program. Accounting and specific math skills aren't required, just the aptitude to work with numbers and people and to read and interpret the tax laws.
This program is suitable for all adults who seek a fast track to a professional white-collar career. Tax preparation is especially appealing to those who would enjoy helping other people by making the intimidating task of tax preparation a pleasant experience, while saving their clients money by minimizing their tax liabilities.
Tax preparation is also an ideal career choice for those looking for part-time income. Homemakers with young children find tax preparation a convenient profession, as they're able to be off when their children are out of school for the summer, yet maintain their professional skills. College students prepare taxes as an opportunity to gain professional work experience and credentials to strengthen their resumes. Moonlighting professionals use tax preparation a source of extra income during winter months.
Many employed and self-employed individuals such as financial services and real-estate professionals find tax preparation a complementary profession to earn extra money and generate leads for their other professional activities, while also enabling them to better serve their clients through knowledge of the tax consequences of their clients' decisions.
