The Tax Preparation Certificate prepares students for entry-level employment as tax-preparation paraprofessionals. Such tax prepares may be responsible for assisting in the completion of small-business income-tax returns, individual income-tax returns, and payroll tax returns.
This one-year certificate program is designed to accommodate those who are employed full-time or are attending college on a part-time basis, seeking to upgrade their existing employment skills or begin a job as a tax preparer. Students may apply all credits earned in the Tax Preparer Certificate toward an Associate of Applied Business degree in Accounting.
