A bachelor’s degree is normally completed in four years. However, depending on the school and area of study, it may take between three and five years. This undergraduate degree is usually earned before a master’s degree.

What is a Bachelor in Taxation? This degree is usually a specialty within an accounting program and focuses on preparing specialists in tax preparation. General courses in accounting are taken, including financial accounting, management accounting, international business law, management, organizational behavior and marketing. Tax-specific courses are also a focus and may include federal income taxation, business taxation and financial-statement analysis. Programs aim to develop an understanding of tax management for both businesses and individuals. It’s important to note, though, that due to the complexity of tax laws, most students choose to concentrate only on one area.

The benefits of completing a taxation program include the ability to work in tax preparation or start your own business as a tax preparer. You’re able to competently complete required forms for a variety of clients, ensuring they are properly meeting their tax obligations.

The cost of a program is difficult to estimate due to variations in programs and schools. The best way to find out your likely expenses is to contact the financial aid office at your chosen school.

Graduates of a program are prepared to work as tax accountants and sit for any required licensing. Students may also work as tax preparers. Employment could be found with the government or private employers. This includes working in your own tax-preparation business or working for a tax-preparation company. Additionally, you are prepared to work in a company’s financial department. Common career options for graduates of a taxation bachelor’s degree program also include auditor and tax attorney, though it should be noted that becoming an attorney requires additional education.
