Over 1 million people are employed in the income tax preparation industry, and these positions return every tax season as 61% of Americans choose to leverage the experience of a professional tax preparer.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released Friday, August 5 that unemployment remained unchanged for July 2011, meaning that 9.1% of Americans are unemployed. This on the heels of the drastic stock market fall August 4, and the downgrading of the US credit rating that left many unemployed workers feeling bleak as they attempt to make ends meet. But there is an opportunity to learn a skill that continues to offer employment every year – tax preparation. And Liberty Tax Service will offer over 5,000 tax schools around the country, starting in September, bringing new employable skills to those seeking work.

“Over 1 million people are employed in the income tax preparation industry,” says John T. Hewitt, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Liberty Tax Service. “And these positions return every tax season as 61% of Americans choose to leverage the experience of a professional tax preparer,” adds Hewitt.

According to BLS for July 2011, 13.9 million Americans are unemployed in a workforce of 153.2 million (http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.htm). One million jobs is equal to about 10% of the unemployed American workers.
