I am in the midst of taking the first tax preparer's class and it did indeed cost me $199, and indeed bilingual speakers are allowed to take classes in my area for $99 and are told they are looking for bilingual speakers... we have some in our class and they are pandered to often not knowing how to use a computer or needing help translating the english instructions... I am doing well in the class and if hired as a first year tax preparer will get a salary I started with in 1979. I was already told I probably wouldn't do more than 50 tax returns a year and I must have looked surprised because the person that told me this then looked down quickly, I do them manually and correctly in 1/2 hour so using the software I'd be able to whip them through... perhaps 50 every two weeks not 50 the entire season... but I am not letting that deter me because I will find out from the manager of the office I will work out how she or he handles newbees... I enjoy doing the returns so perhaps after getting some experience if the pay is shoddy I can go elsewhere...
