Virginia Beach, VA (Vocus) August 18, 2009 -- The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 has ushered in an economic stimulus package of tax breaks including a first-time home buyer's credit, and measures to help the unemployed, retirees, workers, students and families. In this banner year of widespread tax changes due to this economic stimulus package, students attending Liberty Tax Service's fall tax school will have the opportunity to examine them closely for personal tax savings.
"This year, tax school is an even more timely method in order to take advantage of these tax-savings measures before they expire," commented John Hewitt, CEO and Founder of Liberty Tax Service. "New car purchases and residential energy improvements can yield tax advantages, but there are deadlines for reaping the benefits. Our course is practical for all consumers, whether someone is taking the course to try and save money on their own return, or may want to work in the tax industry."
The Liberty Tax school curriculum offers a practical application of the tax code so students can learn to prepare taxes by completing paper tax forms and by using computer applications. Students do not have to have any previous tax experience to enroll, and can take advantage of flexible morning or evening class schedules.
There's a minimal charge for books and supplies. Registration is underway for the basic ten-week course that starts in Liberty Tax offices and is available online in early September. After completing tax school, students can apply for seasonal employment with Liberty Tax Service. More registration and location information is available about Liberty's tax schools at http://www.libertytax.com or by calling 800-658-1042.
