Franchisee FAQ's

Franchisee FAQ's

Q: Don’t I have to be an accountant to be a tax professional?

A: No, in fact, most tax professionals do not have university accounting degrees. You will need to complete a short tax preparation course. We will help you arrange this training.

Q: What if I’m not a “numbers person”?

A: That’s OK. All you really need to succeed with this business is an ability to use a computer and a willingness to help people. We will teach you the rest.

Q: Does this opportunity really offer high income potential?

A: Yes, of course results vary for everyone and can depend on many factors such as your work ethic and location. But an income of $5,000 a week for 50 weeks or $50,000 or more for just tax season is not out of the question. Remember, Annetta Powell made $8 million over 10 years with her tax business. She also made $1.8 million in just 120 days. There is no reason why you can’t do the same or even better.

Q: Does this make a good additional revenue stream?

A: Yes, you can be your own boss and set your own hours with this opportunity. That means you can work part-time if you want or just have your business up and running during tax season. This can be a great secondary income stream.

Q: Can I make money year-round?

A: Yes, we will show you how to make money with your business outside of tax season.

Q: How do I get paid (receive my tax preparation fees)?

A: Once the IRS sends your client’s refund to the bank that is responsible for issuing the client his or her refund check, your fees will automatically be deducted out of the refund and deposited directly into your business bank account. You get paid the exact same day that the client receives their refund!

Q: Are startup costs low?

A: Yes, particularly if you choose to start a virtual business. In that case, you won’t have to worry about such things as office rent and utilities.

Q: Why should I choose Tax Experts?

A: One of the great things about us is that we also provide marketing training so that you know how to attract clients and grow your business. Many companies only focus on the business side and don’t give business owners the marketing education they need to succeed.

Q: When can I get started?

A: Yes we offer ongoing training to our franchisees. As regulations change in our industry we keep our franchisees up to date. We offer ongoing sales and marketing training for new or seasoned tax company franchises. Our franchisees have to remain current with local, state and federal licensing and regulation associated with owning a tax franchise.

Q: How long have you been in business?

A: Tax Experts was founded in 2009 and just opened the Tax Experts on the Go virtual division in 2020. We have helped numerous people from all walks of life achieve their dreams of owning a tax preparation business.

Q: What if I have additional questions?

A: Please don’t hesitate to contact us. We would love to hear from you and to provide you with additional information. You can contact us here.
