TaxAct has launched TaxAct ProAdvance, an online resource center to help professional tax preparers grow their businesses.

ProAdvance provides tips, information and special offers to help tax professionals navigate the challenges of operating a tax practice and help clients with their business needs.

“Tax preparers often wear multiple hats, serving as practice owners as well as trusted advisors to clients who are starting, building or growing a business,” said TaxAct president JoAnn Kintzel in a statement. “TaxAct ProAdvance connects tax professionals with valuable resources to advise clients, while driving top- and bottom-line growth to enhance their own practices.”

TaxAct ProAdvance partners include Biz2Credit, a provider of small business funding that matches borrowers to financial institutions based on each company's profile; BluePay, which provides payment-processing solutions for tax preparers; and SurePayroll, which helps tax professionals identify options for managing 401(k) plans, health insurance, workers' compensation, employee screening and more.

In the area of continuing education, Surgent gives tax preparers access to ongoing learning, such as webinars, self-study courses, and live seminars. In addition, Surgent offers coursework to help prepare professionals for the IRS enrolled agent exam.

Another ProAdvance partner is Webiquity, which provides marketing managers who construct and manage complete online presence campaigns for tax professionals, including mobile-friendly websites, search engine optimization, social media and local presence marketing.

Broker-dealer HD Vest Investment Services is also available with support for an independent network of tax and non-tax professionals who provide comprehensive investment solutions including securities, insurance, money management services, and banking solutions.
