Ok, so let's say you're looking for a second job for the holidays to provide for your family and offset many of the bills that come with the holiday season. For many of us, the only real opportunity to earn extra income is to work retail. The Chicago Tribune published a post a few years ago that took a look at some of the ramifications of taking on a second job during the holidays.
Unfortunately, taking on a retail position means working very odd hours that could put make you less productive with your current position. Plus, the pay isn't too great. Therein lies the problem: how do you find a secondary job that can help you earn extra income but provide the flexibility you need to maintain a healthy family life and won't impact your current position?
Entrepreneurial-focused individuals may want to take a look at opening their own tax preparation business to earn extra income. There are inherent benefits to going this route: it is a stable field first off. No matter what happens in the economy, people will need to pay their taxes. Preparing tax returns will never be a job that goes out of date.
In addition, by starting your own tax preparation service, you will be able to control your own hours. The amount of work you want to take on will be up to you. If you're looking for a new career, that's possible. If you're just looking for a part-time job to supplement your income, that's a viable option as well.
Starting your own IRS tax preparation service begins with getting your Preparer's Tax Identification Number (PTIN) and Electronic Filing Identification Number (EFIN). Once you get these numbers, you can begin to process tax returns. America's Tax Office can help you through every step of the process to ensure you have the necessary credentials to facilitate your own new tax business.
We offer a variety of packages, depending on your own goals, and we can provide the necessary services to ensure you can take your business off the ground. Even if you're a beginner to tax processing services, we have a package for you. If you're a veteran looking for extra income or to start your own tax prep business, we have a package for you as well. During this holiday season, remember there are more opportunities out there than just working as a cashier. If you want to supplement your income or want to become your own boss, consider opening your own tax preparation business.
