NATP Tax Basic Training Will Turn Your Business to Gold
Since tax season can feel like military maneuvers with all its unexpectedness, it is critical to be prepared and ready to take on whatever challenges might come your way. NATP is ready to join your battalion with its 2012 Tax Preparation Basic Training Course, giving you or a staff 'soldier' the tools to master the basics of tax preparation and provide you with the assistance you need to serve your clients.
This self-study course is intended for a new employee or new tax preparer who wants to learn how to do basic tax preparation of the Form 1040 and some of the more popular schedules that accompany the 1040. NATP has bundled the key courses and is offering them to you at hundreds of dollars less than it would cost to take them individually.
