|About The Provider:
||The Income Tax School was founded in 1989 by Charles E. McCabe, who has 39 years of executive-level income tax preparation industry experience, as well as many years of professional experience as a teacher and author on income tax preparation and education.
Our Tax School System was first released in 1993 and has been used annually since then by hundreds of tax and accounting firms, numerous colleges, and many individual students wanting to learn income tax.
In 2001, The Income Tax School launched its online tax school and now teaches tax education to students all over the country and beyond. Many of our students are beginners who are just learning taxes for the first time. However, we also have EAs, CPAs and CFPs that take our courses for Continuing Professional Education.
A number of colleges and universities in several states have adopted The Income Tax School materials for their tax preparation continuing education or college credit courses.
