Above anything else, a tax preparer is someone who loves to help others. They thrive on challenges, but they love bringing a smile to someone’s face and making life easier for another person. You don’t necessarily have to be good with numbers to be successful, although you should have decent mathematical capabilities or develop them as you become a tax preparer. But what’s far more important than the skills is the actual mindset.
An Attitude Of Service
You should always be looking for ways to help others. The entire idea of tax preparation is that you can do a really good job for someone and take away the need for them to focus on a task that they may not like. Few people really enjoy the process of preparing their tax forms. That’s why they turn to companies like Liberty Tax Services: we make it easier for them, taking the burden off of them and getting it all done in a much shorter period of time.
In order to prepare returns, you’ll need to know what you’re doing. But you can learn that in a number of different ways. For example, Liberty Tax offers free courses for anyone who wants more tax information. These serve as a good primer for someone who’s interested in starting prep work, or just interested in learning whether or not it might be a good fit for them.
The Liberty Tax Atmosphere
All of our tax preparers are a part of creating the Liberty Tax atmosphere. We are a unique company because we believe that taxes can and should be fun for everyone. This attitude starts with every single one of our employees, not just our actual preparers. But it’s their responsibility to really spread the Liberty Tax Services culture of fun. Of course, this isn’t a requirement everywhere that you might want to work as a tax preparer. It’s something unique to Liberty, but it’s something that our clients and our staff really value.
