Join Our Instructor Team

We are looking for energetic and outgoing experienced instructors with a broad knowledge of federal tax issues to present our workshop materials nationwide. Our instructors are active, seasoned tax preparers with excellent communication skills. They are also NATP members and are EAs, CPAs, or attorneys.

Instructor interviews will be held on June 4, 2015 in Appleton, WI. Interviews include a written test and a twenty-minute presentation on a preassigned tax topic.

We hope you'll consider our invitation to try out for the NATP Instructor team! Please send your resume, references, a brief biography, a summary of the number and types of tax returns you prepare, and a short video (about 15 minutes) of you presenting any topic in front of a group or even alone. We want to see you in action!

To be considered for an Instructor interview, your complete packet of materials must be postmarked by May 1, 2015.
