Hours Cut? Become a Tax Preparer!

By: Jamie Waggoner


Tax preparation is a perfect job to have if you are laid off or your hours are cut because of how you can manage time well.

When I mention managing time I am talking about how you can come in after your regular job that has maybe cut your hours and come into work at a tax office for a few hours.

If you have a 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. you can come in after that job to the tax office and work from maybe 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. or 9:00 p.m.  It is a great way to work around specific schedules which is nice and stress free.

Get the Money Back

Get the money back you lost when your hours were cut or you were laid off.This job is great for that kind of situation so you don’t have to worry about making less than expected.

During hard times like that it can be very difficult to find a good job and deal with the stress of maybe not being able to pay certain bills.

Some people live pay check by pay check and can’t handle pay cuts or lay-offs, which is why tax preparation is here to save the day!

What Some Tax Offices Offer

Many might be worried about equipment for the tax preparer job or training needed, but have no fear some offices offer both of those!

You only have to come into the office and they give you the full set up such as, equipment, clients, and training.

This is a relief to many who think about doing this job after a budget cut or lay off because they don’t have the money for these expenditures.

Good Side Job

It really is a great side job to look into even if you aren’t having a budget cut at work or laid off, you might just be retiring, but need something stimulating to work on at home.

Tax preparing is a great job for people who want some more intellectual stimulation in their life.

You can work at home and be self-employed as a tax preparer which makes it great being able to just come home from work and be in the comfort of your home. 

So, whether you are dealing with budget cuts, lay-offs, or thinking about retiring by lowering the hours you work, think about tax preparation.

It is there when you need it, not a huge commitment, and a great side job that can make you some extra cash!
