LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE


The Tax Prep Industry

Since tax laws are so confusing, more and more people are opting to have their taxes done by a tax professional. During the past 5 years alone the tax preparation field has grown by a whopping 2.9%. This means it has become a $10 billion a year industry. The IRS has estimated that there will be over 250 million tax returns filed in 2018 alone. This means there is an ever growing supply of potential customers.

How Much Money Does A Tax Professional Make?

The tax season only runs for about 3.5 months from January 1 to April 15. During this time a tax professional can make over $50,000! Independent tax preparers (not employees) can earn even more. Some successful independent tax preparers make more the $100,000 in a tax season.

How To Become A Successful Tax Professional

If you’re thinking of becoming a tax professional, there’s never been a better time. However, this is not a field you can simply enter and make money. You will need to get educated.

There are courses available to teach you how to become a tax professional. One such program is called Tax Business Launch.

What Is Tax Business Launch?

Tax Business Launch is a comprehensive course that will teach you how to become a successful tax professional. It was created by Ben Robinson who is the founder of the incredibly popular Bookkeeper Business Launch.

Ben used to be a CPA and owned his own CPA firm so he knows what it takes to succeed as a tax professional. Today Ben has a goal to teach thousands of people how to succeed in the field of tax prep.

But, is Ben’s Tax Business Launch program really all it claims. Is the whole Tax Business Launch program a scam to take your hard earned dollars.

That’s why we put together this Tax Business Launch review. We want to help you learn if the program can work for you to become a sought-after tax professional, or is the course a scam?

Let’s dig deeper into the Tax Business Launch course. We did an in-depth analysis for this Tax Business Launch review. Below you will  find everything the program offers.
