Intuit is hiring thousands of credentialed tax experts to prepare for the expansion of its TurboTax product for the upcoming tax season.

The software company will be expanding the do-it-yourself functionality for its tax preparation software. Part of this expansion is the availability of live tax experts to answer question from filers at any time of day.

CPAs, enrolled agents and even practicing attorneys are on the wanted list to create a virtual team of tax experts to connect directly with TurboTax users who would like their taxes reviewed or some guidance on completing their tax filings.

Those hired will be able to choose the times and hours they want to work, similar to how contract workers on the cab-hailing app Lyft or the hand-for-hire app TaskRabbit operate.

The Turbotax software routes the tax payer’s question to an expert. Then, using one-way video and screen sharing, the expert will show and explain answers.
