Although there are no specific postsecondary educational
requirements for tax preparers, you should certainly get your high
school diploma. While you are in high school there are a number of
classes you can take that will help prepare you for this type of
work. You should take mathematics classes. Accounting, bookkeeping,
and business classes will also give you a feel for working with
numbers and show you the importance of accurate work. In addition,
take computer classes. You will need to be comfortable using
computers, since much tax work is done using this tool. Finally,
take English classes. English classes will help you work on your
research, writing, and speaking skills-important communication
skills to have when you work with clients.
