Tax Preparation Training Program (LA)

Looking for a great parallel career to help supplement the earnings from your industry work?  Are you detail-oriented and like numbers?  Professional tax preparation might be a good parallel career for you!

The Career Center at The Actors Fund and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) are coming together to offer a free, two-stage Tax Preparation Training Program for entertainment industry professionals.

Stage One – Tax Preparation Course
Participants will learn tax law, tax return preparation and the many unique ways entertainment professionals in a freelance environment need to manage income and expenses. This nine-week course will start on October 23rd and meet every Monday evening from 6:30PM to 9:30PM at The Actors Fund’s office on Wilshire Blvd.

Stage Two – VITA Internship
After completing the Tax Preparation Course, candidates will volunteer in The Actors Fund VITA program in February and March, 2018, to gain hands-on experience.  These sessions are also held at the Wilshire location. Obtaining VITA certification will be part of the 9 week course. The two part training program is geared toward helping candidates prepare for taking the CTEC exam (California Tax Education Council). 

Space is limited. Applications will be accepted until October 17.
