Starting a Home Based Tax Business

I plan on retiring from my bookkeeper job this fall and am worried if I will be able to financially afford it on my pension alone. I also worry that I will become bored and sedentary with too much time on my hands. Of course, I will enjoy having my days freed up especially with the holidays quickly approaching. But after the first of the new year, I want to find a way to make some extra money. Working from the comfort of my own home would be ideal. A friend told me about Keystone Tax Solutions software and suggested I look into it.

With my accounting background of 20 years, tax preparation would be a logical way for me to earn some extra money. I can work as little or as much as I want, which is perfect for me. I’m leaning towards purchasing the individual software package which allows for unlimited 1040 and e-filing. It is currently on sale for $199 which would save me $200 right off the bat. I wouldn’t have to do too many tax returns to recoup my initial investment. And if I would happen to run into any problems they have 24/7 customer and technical support.

I really think my plan of working at home after retirement is a great concept. Since word of mouth is one of the best ways to get my idea out there I’m going to start networking with everybody I know. I don’t think it will take very long for the phone calls to start coming in from potential clients. To say I’m excited is an understatement. I honestly believe my home based tax business will flourish and be prosperous for me. I can work diligently from January 1 through April 15 and should have plenty of money to live off of until the next tax season.
