After years of seeing people who prepare their own tax return make the same expensive mistakes over and over, I decided to create a course that will save you time, money, and sanity at tax time. This course is designed to thoroughly teach you the ins and outs of your federal income taxes so you can file your personal tax return with confidence. It is taught line-by-line so you can understand where the amounts come from and how they effect your tax situation. This course will be easy to follow as it teaches tax in a way that is unaffected by which software you use.There is also a checklist provided to use once you have completed your tax return to make sure you've claimed all the deductions you can before you efile your return. There are also tips and tricks to save on tax, including things you can do now for next year's tax return, throughout the course. Never file your return without this knowledge again! You cannot afford to neglect this important part of your personal finances. If you are intentional with your money, your budget, and deliberate with your financial goals, this course is for you.

*Please note, this course does not cover filing a Schedule C for self-employment or Schedule E for rental property owners. These areas are covered in other courses offered by Online Tax Academy.

Having spent years as a tax professional working with businesses and individuals alike, I have seen people make the same types of mistakes over and over when they prepare their own taxes. It is my mission to arm people with the type of knowledge and techniques, most of which are only known by professionals in the tax industry, so they can pay the least amount of tax and handle various life events that effect their financial situation. I have a bachelor’s degree in accounting and I am an IRS Enrolled Agent. More importantly, I have a passion for teaching and sharing with others.
