Before serving my first client at H & R Block, one of the biggest tax preparation companies, I had over 130 hours in class training and did tens of case studies. 75% of my clients come back to me tax season after tax season.
In this course will explain tax preparation terms and concepts in plain English. You will get an opportunity to do a couple of case studies for practice, so by the end of my course doing your own taxes will be a walk in the park.
My course consists of screen cast videos (yes, you will see what I see on my screen!) and text lectures. We will go over income documents and expenses records. I will explain which tax benefits you get no questions asked, and which ones you need paperwork for. You will get to see the whole tax preparation process over my shoulder.
I created this course for freelancers who want to save money by doing their taxes themselves rather than paying top dollar at the retailer.

First of all, let me acknowledge you for looking online trying to learn things which will improve your life. So many people just spend their time in front on TV, but not you. You are searching for the ways to make your life better.
I am Larissa Fontenot. I am originally from Russia, moved to the US in 2000.
I have 4 years of experience doing taxes for clients who are self employed, with home ownership, purchase, or sale, real estate rentals or vacation homes, ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) application, health care expenses (e.g. medical, dental), charitable giving, military, investment/stock options,clergy, tax planning.
After having done hundreds of returns in the retail office at a big household name company and additional 173 hours of continues training (63 hours of which were in class), I have created US Taxes courses to help you see the forest behind the trees – the big picture that comes together like a puzzle out of all details of your financial situation.
As complicated as tax code is, I still can explain fundamental concepts to you in layperson language, so you can learn to confidently do your taxes yourself.
I can promise you, that it is quite possible to understand what goes into the calculation of your tax liability and take the mystery out of tax preparation: short 7 years ago I decided to make some extra money doing tax returns from people because I'd just gone through a divorce and had never done my taxes myself, as I am originally from Russia, and my American husband always took our tax paperwork to H & R Block. That's exactly why I looked into this company for extra work - little did I know, they had training available! So I successfully graduated from that training course after over 130 hours in class training and dozens of practice case studies done.
I am positive, I can teach you how to do your own taxes yourself correctly too. Thank you for checking out my courses!
I also enjoy teaching Excel productivity hacks. At my job they call me 'Excel Queen'.
I learned everything I know in Excel while working on projects for my jobs since September 1997. From creating graphs for engineers back in Russia, to doing sales analysis for a Consumer Packaged Goods company in the US - I enjoy my Excel projects as they provide challenge to learn more and improve my skills.
The more I learned Excel, the better paying jobs I had. The company I work for regularly sends me to run Excel training sessions in different parts of Southeast US for groups of sales managers. Now I conduct Excel training for the company in class and via webinars.
Teaching is the second nature to me as I graduated from Perm State Humanitarian Pedagogical University (PSHPU) in Russia, which trains students how to be teachers.
I enjoy showing people how they can do the same amount of work in Excel they spend hours, and sometimes days doing, in just minutes. My Excel course came to life because I want more people to work in Excel more efficiently, be less tired at the end of the day so that their families can enjoy them, and they too can enjoy spending time with their loved ones and not be tired of fighting with software which in fact, can be their friend and do their work for them.
I am looking forward to answering the questions you have in discussion forum.
Your success is my goal!
