H&R Block Income Tax Course: Open for Enrollment

July 20, 2016

In the past year alone, federal and state tax code changes impacted health care, education, property ownership and more. The shared or gig economy continues to grow and has a myriad of tax implications. Keeping up with these changes and more can be a daunting task. For those who want to know how these changes impact their lives and the lives of others, annual enrollment for the H&R Block Income Tax Course is now open nationwide.

The H&R Block Income Tax Course, which started in 1978, gives students the opportunity to learn new skills from an industry leader. Not only will they better understand their own taxes, students also can learn to prepare taxes like a professional.

Many H&R Block’s executives started their careers with the company after taking the income tax course. Others, like Kip Knight, president of Franchise operations, who took the course when he joined the company several years ago, prepared client tax returns annually in addition to their leadership duties.

“Tax preparation has never been more complicated or important for the American taxpayer,” said Knight. “The best place to learn the numerous aspects and applications of the US Tax Code is to take the Introductory Tax Course at H&R Block.”

H&R Block is not only the expert in tax return preparation, but also makes taxes easy to understand and applicable to the needs of individual taxpayers. The Income Tax Course curriculum includes:

  • Wages, Income & Taxes
  • Filing Requirements
  • Exemptions & Adjustments
  • Interest & Dividends
  • Itemized Deductions
  • Credits, including the Earned Income Tax Credit and Education Credits
  • Retirement & More

Students will learn from instructors who, on average, have 12 years’ experience preparing taxes.

The classes offer a unique blended-learning approach for students. It combines face-to-face classroom instruction from experienced tax professionals with self-study learning and activities. The self-paced study experience combines guided study with online learning. This innovative approach provides students with the best features of both classroom and online instruction in a flexible and convenient learning environment.

At some locations, bilingual classes are taught in English and the instructor or assistant will be able to answer questions in Spanish as needed. Textbooks are available in both English and Spanish and course exams will be offered in a bilingual format. Graduates will receive H&R Block certification, a certificate of completion and qualifying education hours.

The course is conducted at multiple locations at different times throughout the day. There is no tuition fee, but students must buy their printed course materials. For more information, visit H&R Block’s Income Tax Course.
