Good company to learn how to prepare tax returns on a commercial basis.

Tax Associate (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

ProsVery good materials used in tax classes; Company offers a wide variety of classes as well, including classes that count towards continuing education requirements.

H&R Block supports employees in attaining the Registered Tax Return Preparer (RTRP) designation, which will be required of all tax preparers by December 31, 2013.

Flexible work schedule.

ConsFirst year salary is fixed. It was $8.50/hr in Raleigh during the 2012 season. Associates earn commissions in year two.

If you are looking to build a larger practice, you could do a lot better financially as a sole proprietor or an LLC. However, you would be responsible for overhead, marketing, and could be personally responsible in the event of malpractice.

Advice to Senior ManagementMinor suggestion: There are times where tax associates will be over aggressive in taking walk-in clients when they have scheduled appointments. The problem is two-fold: First, it denies another associate the opportunity to complete a return when they are unencumbered. Second, it can delay the scheduled appointment, which affects the service of other clients.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
