What our students have to say about the Professional Tax Preparer™ program:

I am working toward earning my Enrolled Agent designation. The process to earn this designation is not easy, but the knowledge I gained from taking the Universal Accounting Professional Tax Preparer course has made it ‘attainable’ for me. I am so excited! I am also now a QuickBooks Pro Advisor. The Universal Accounting QuickBooks Specialist course was extremely helpful in preparing me for all of that! Thank you,
Brenda W.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and presentation from Allen. I've never taken a distance learning course before and was a little apprehensive. I must say I was pleasantly surprised and am looking forward to the QuickBooks training that I've signed up for as well.

I LOVE this course! I always said I hated taxes and I never wanted to do taxes. But I think it was just because I didn't know much about them. The videos are great. Some I have watched more than once and I really do get soooooo much great information from them! I am looking forward spending many years in continuing tax preparation. My goal is to be one of the BEST!
