What will I learn in Liberty Tax classes?
Instructors cover all schedules, credits and forms associated with
individual tax filing. Students apply their tax knowledge to prepare

There is no obligation. While we do hire many students from the class,
others take the class to learn more about tax preparation. We don’t
promise a job, and you don’t have to sign anything obligating you.

hiring 40,000 tax preparers and does recruit from the pool of tax
school students. Students may uncover mistakes they have made
for several years and uncover overlooked deductions and credits.

claim any refunds due for those years.
