​What you will learn

You will learn how to complete an income statement for the self-employed, partnerships, farmers, fishermen, and professionals, using the most recent tax laws, and budget proposals so that taxpayers arrange affairs within the framework of the law to pay the least taxes possible.

This course includes a tremendous amount of useful information for tax preparers and bookkeepers who wish to gain a better understanding of what they are doing and become more accurate. My objective was to learn how to prepare tax returns for small proprietorships, in order to expand my practice. In addition, I do bookkeeping for small businesses and was keen on gaining a better understanding of tax requirements, so that I could be a better bookkeeper. I have acquired a wealth of knowledge and feel a lot more confident about the services I am offering to my clients.
