Question by Mike W: What licenses are needed in order to operate a business doing personal and small business taxes and returns?
Answer by richards150
To do taxes for the public, you have to have a CPA. It’s like a master’s degree and the only legit way. I’ve thought about it too, but legally, you can’t do people’s taxes publicly. Now if you do a family member or friend’s taxes and they want to kick back some money to you for appreciation, then I think that is okay. But you can’t call yourself a tax person and advertise it.
