In the Year 2023, Will Clients Who Don't Have a Business Even Use Tax Preparers Anymore?

It's a question worth asking, right?

Because 2023 is not far away, at all.

The market for tax preparation services aimed at W-2 workers, flatlined for years, is declining rapidly.

Over the past three years, according to IRS Filing Statistics, "early season" filing by tax professionals is down 23%.

Perhaps you're already seeing this trend in your own tax business or tax career?

Remember how January used to be an extremely busy and profitable month, and now it's kinda slow?

Do you think that this trend away from W-2 workers using professional tax preparers is going to "stop," or do you think the trend is going to accelerate?

YES, we know that there are some tax professionals who are still growing and successful by focusing on 1040 tax preparation.  Absolutely, there are!  In fact, many of our Pronto Tax School Members are these highly successful "Short Form Warriors."

Nevertheless, I think you would agree, numbers do not lie!

And every single number you can look at right now tells the exact same story:

  • Demand for "relatively simple" / "early season" type of tax preparation service is declining, rapidly.
  • "TurboTax® and Friends" (the do-it-yourself online software companies) are taking "relatively easy" tax prep clients by the millions.

Ready for some good news though???

The market for tax and accounting help aimed at self-employed / entrepreneur / small business owner clients is absolutely EXPLODING WITH OPPORTUNITIES, and here are a few simple statistics to prove the point:

  • By 2020, half of all American workers will be self-employed (Source: Forbes® Magazine)
  • 5,500 people per day join a network marketing home-based business opportunity (Source: Networking Times Magazine)
  • 27 million new full-time self-employed people within the next two years (Source: Freshbooks® Accounting Software Report)
  • This massive trend towards self-employment creates a massive opportunity for tax professionals who are prepared to capitalize...

However, those tax professionals who are not comfortable and confident working with these client groups should not even attempt the job, because "learning on the job" with these client groups is extremely painful and expensive.

If you see these trends happening, and you want to put yourself in the best position to succeed in this New Era of Tax, the problem now becomes:

  • Where do you get the training you need to feel truly comfortable and confident in working with business tax clients?
  • After all, the experienced CPAs and other highly-experienced tax pros who actually know how to do business tax work at an elite level are not exactly looking to help YOU compete with them, right?

But now, thanks to the Business Tax Verified Training Program developed by CPA Adam Shay and Pronto Tax School Founder Andy Frye, that has changed:

The business tax training you need to succeed is now accessible and affordable for all tax pros!

In this unique, comprehensive training Program, you will learn:

  • How to achieve Schedule C Mastery (yes we know you know Schedule C, but there are other levels to this game!)
  • How to provide tax preparation and consulting services for C corporations
  • How to provide tax preparation and consulting services for S corporations
  • How to provide tax preparation and consulting services for LLCs
  • And much, much more.

The Business Tax Verified Training Program with CPA Adam Shay provides you with a fast, fun, and comprehensive way to participate in the healthiest, fastest-growing segment of the tax industry: self-employed / entrepreneur / small business clients. 

Based on our vast experience in working with these clients, we show you how to avoid the expensive, painful problems that often happen with these client groups, and we also show you how to maximize value for business tax clients so that they are happy to pay you premium prices and send you numerous referrals. 

If you're looking to maximize your earning power in this New Era of Tax, you must be able to do work for business clients at a high level, and that's exactly what we help you do in this Program!

In addition to the comprehensive training materials included in this Program, you'll receive private access to Adam, Andy, and a community of over 200 Business Tax Verified Members who are working towards the same goal as you: to achieve excellence and strong earning power in the New Era of Tax!

The tax industry has changed--and it's not going to "change back." 

Many tax professionals will not adapt to this New Era, and will continue to see their earning power decrease. 

For those who prefer VICTORY, we are here to help you adapt and prosper.


And, yes, we can help!
