3. Do you need to set up a business/EIN or can you do this independently?
You will not need to set up a business nor obtain an EIN. You will be paid as an independent contractor licensed by the IRS with a PTIN and New York State with a NYPTIN and will be paid by 1099 at the end of the year for the total sum minus all fees paid to TRUTHFUL TAXES for Income Tax Filing Purposes.

The company TRUTHFUL TAXES will be providing a 1099 for all the sum made.

TRUTHFUL TAXES will collect all fees then deposit your net fees after all company fees collected and direct deposit daily or weekly.
5 a. Is the royalty fees taken from what we make from the client per filing?
YES you never have to pay us directly. We take our fees from the gross deposit.
6. Is it safe to assume after every year, you will have to pay for the software again ($3,000)?
Every year the software needs to be renewed and purchased so if you do this for 30 years that's 30 charges of $3,000 saying the software cost will never go up which we highly doubt.
7. Are all the fees associated with the Tax Partnership Program Tax Deductible?
All company fees and cost for the course and software purchase will all be completely written off as they are business expenses associated with making your money, so guess what........ "You Actually Never Paid" we will be writing the cost off on your 1099 for you. :)

The set up fees covers all cost associated with getting the individual prepared and all material needed to become a licensed tax preparer with the IRS and New York State.
