Income after April 15th. So I have a very small tax practice. I filed 12 extensions and already have 6 of those returns completed. So I'm watching my income drop. I have two small business clients who will probably continue to have me do the quarterly write-up but that's it. All my others I'll expect to wait till year end and have me catch up everything at once. I've got plans for some limited marketing efforts and will probably end up spending a few days just making phone calls. But I've been considering another thing for about a month now and would appreciate any insight or feedback you might offer. I'm thinking I'll arrange to conduct QuickBooks classes. Probably a room at the library and charge like $99 for 4 hours of instruction. Spend 1 hour on basic accounting, because that seems to be what most QB users lack. Then 2 hours on QuickBooks specific stuff and then 1 hour Q&A. I'd aim for 10 to 15 in the class and offer them a discount on my services for review or tax prep. Or offer another 4 hours to each of 1 on 1 specific to their company assistance. I've found I can usually clean up a set of books in about 8 hours if the user didn't know what they were doing. I got inspired to consider this because here in the local CL there is a CPA who's offering 1 on 1 QB training at $911 a client. Anyway, have any of you done this sort of thing? Was it successful? What would you do differently now? Kind regards, Grade A CPB

Library wont give room if you charge for classes

If you were giving free classes maybe, but if you charge that's a no no.

Here is a thought! If you have credentials?

My practice is 10 years and I have been an EA for all that time. I have started to offer RTP Exam courses for the new Registered Tax Prepaprers that are not connected to a franchise, big block store. Reach out to the RTP's and offer a $199.00 course. Use Pub 17 as your source (can not go wrong using IRS pub for an IRS exam) and offer a one all day class. Over is is low, profit high.

Just open up the phone book, Google, Or drive up and down the street and reach our to these future preparers. If you can do five people a month for the next 6 months (youdo the manth).

Have you tried your local Liberty office?

Typically the owners are tax illiterate and are advised to hire someone with experience to teach their 18 week classes which start in September(seriously).

Go for it. Do it. And - - -

try lots of other things too. If it works, do it again. If it doesn't, try something else. Buy a nice golf shirt and put your logo on it. You'll be surprised what comes out of the woodwork. See if you can do some accounting, bookkeeping, consulting or payroll for somebody.

Offer a Free 2nd look tax service. Put an ad in the local paper. You'll look over somebody's taxes and if you find something, offer to do a very cost effective amended return. You'll pick up another client for next tax season. And maybe a referral too.

Rent a table for $20 at a local community garden show, or weekly fresh fruit and crafts market. No one else will be discussing taxes or bookkeeping.

Network, take classes from NAEA or NATP. Get an EA.

Get involved with Community Service projects like Habitat for Humanity or HomeWorks of America. Volunteer with AARP / VITA / TCE. You can become a tax trainer, which heps you.

Last week, I helped an 85 yer old tax client move from one condo to another and took no money for the move. Well, I just picked up 2 new clients (her daughter and granddaughter) because of the help I gave to grandma. Neither had started their 2010 taxes.

It's simple networking, knowledge, and treating others like you would love to be treated. Like a trusted friend.

Good luck.

I thought

I don't know but I have always thought that only people who were OK'd by Intuit could teach QB classes.
