Help Business Clients Way Better and

Earn Way More Money for Yourself by

Mastering Business Tax Work

Learn to Provide Elite-Level Service to Advanced Schedule C, C Corporation, S Corporation, and LLC Tax Clients.  It's Totally Doable, If You Have Expert Teachers Who Care About Your Success.  We Want To Be Those Teachers for You!

The Business Tax Verified Training Program with CPA Adam Shay is designed to help you:

  • Have no fear of the Tax Preparer Apocalypse.  Demand for tax professionals who focus on "relatively simple" 1040 tax preparation is declining.  Business Tax Verified Members are not worried about that in the slightest.

  • Adapt and prosper in the New Era of Tax.  Demand for tax pros who focus on helping business tax clients is growing rapidly.  The only "catch"?  Taking on this work without proper training and support is expensive, painful, and frequently disastrous.

  • Finally feel confident working with business tax clients.  Your life as a tax professional gets way easier, way more profitable, and way more fun when you have the training and support you need to do business tax work at an elite level.

We're Here to Give You What We Wish We Had: a Way to Learn Business Tax Work that's Faster, Less Painful, and More Fun.

Your friend and colleague Andy Frye here, Founder & CEO of Pronto Tax School, Inc., a working tax professional just like you.


I am humbly asking your permission to talk about some stuff right that might make us a bit uncomfortable, but we really need to think about it, because it frequently hurts our clients and it frequently hurts us, as tax professionals...


That feeling in the pit of your stomach...ugh, just thinking about that feeling hurts.


You're speaking with a business client that's beyond your "basic Schedule C" variety.


A client who wants to grow.


Who wants to grow with you.


The type of client that pays at least $2,000 per year to her tax professional.  Sometimes more.  Often more.


But just one little problem:


You're not confident that you can help this client with her tax needs.


You don't want to hurt this client.  By making mistakes.  By not knowing how to handle something and then the client hears from a friend that you messed something up.


The client senses that you're not quite confident, and the client cuts the conversation short.


It was "nice meeting you," the client says, and then the client is gone.


Gone to another tax pro who does feel confident working with more advanced business tax clients.


Gone to another tax pro who's going to charge 5x - 10x what you were "hoping" you could charge, and the client will pay it without objecting, because those are the market rates for working with tax pros who feel confident working with business clients.

  • Is something like that story told above happening to you?
  • Are you having to "turn away" high-paying business tax work because you feel not confident or "sort of" / "sometimes" confident?
  • Are you giving business tax work "the old college try," and the "old college try" keeps blowing up in your face?

I know how that feels...that pit in your stomach...the client "smelling" the non-confidence and then transitioning you into "friend mode" with the good old "it was nice meeting you"...


I know that feeling because I experienced it myself, many times...


When I started out doing more advanced business tax work, I had almost NO TRAINING, and almost NO SUPPORT.


The expenses, pain, and humiliation involved in "learning the hard way" with business tax clients almost broke me.


Looking for someone to teach me the "secrets" of business taxes, I met CPA Adam Shay and started doing some research on his efforts to help entrepreneurs with our extensive tax and accounting needs.


I said to myself, "Let me ask this guy Adam if he'll share his business tax knowledge with the rest of us.  So that we can help clients way better and make way more money.  We can create a 'Festivus for the Rest of Us,' like George Costanza said."


So I approached Adam and I said, "Hello, I've been noticing that the demand for small business tax help is going through the roof.  But most tax pros, even CPAs, aren't truly confident helping small business clients.  I noticed that you and your team are pretty awesome at it, could you possibly teach us how to do it?"


To my amazement--because most high-level CPAs had absolutely zero interest in teaching me about business taxes--Adam said, "Sounds good, let's do it."


Turns out Adam himself had felt the same way we have...that pit in your stomach...that terrifying feeling that you don't know what you don't know, and are about to seriously butcher some business taxes and who knows what the consequences of that butchery will be but you're pretty sure that it's not going to be pretty...


Fast forward to four years after from that day I asked Adam to help us, and Adam and I have helped hundreds of tax pros help clients way better and earn way more money for yourself by getting confident in working with business clients.


If you're looking to make the same "leap" we did--from being un-confident to being "best of breed" in helping business tax clients--then you'll want to carefully review this page and consider becoming Business Tax Verified.


With our unique Business Tax Verified Training Program, you can learn in a matter of weeks what in the past has taken tax professionals DECADES to learn (it took me 17 years).


If you're looking to help clients way better, earn way more money for yourself, and change your tax career forever, you're in the right place.


Keep moving down this page to learn what all is included in our Program and how it helps you get these results, and then if you have any further questions before deciding, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions before deciding.


We take pride in helping our fellow tax professionals because YOU are the ones who help your clients.

Who Is this Program For?

  • Tax pros who don't feel confident performing tax preparation and consulting services for business tax clients

    Tax pros who don't feel confident performing business tax work, and you want to help clients way better and make way more money for yourself, without enduring the expensive, painful journey of "learning the hard way."

  • Tax pros who feel sort of confident performing tax preparation and consulting services for business tax clients

    Tax pros who feel "sort of" / "sometimes" confident performing business tax work, and you want to go from "sometimes" / "sort of" to REAL CONFIDENCE, and help client way better and make way more money for yourself, while having access to a "wolfpack" of other tax pros who are making the same journey you are.


  • Busy tax pros wanting to train their tax preparation team

    Tax pros who are already business tax masters and therefore you are overly busy because demand for your services is high and getting higher every day.  You want to train another team member (or multiple team members) on the secret arts of business taxes so that they can lighten your workload while also increasing your profits, but you don't have time to do all the training yourself.

    If you fit into one of those three groups, then you're in the right place!

What Results Can I Expect From This Program?

Avoid painful, humiliating, and expensive problems.

"Learning on the job" with business tax work is an absolute disaster, both for your clients and for you.  You already know this if you've tried to do this kind of work before, without the proper training and support.  We accelerate your learning curve big time, which accelerates your earning power big time.  Avoiding problems is a major key to success!

Enjoy your work and have fun by providing a consistently superior client experience.

There are certain things you can do, in certain ways, to maximize the value your business tax clients receive from you.  Based on our vast experience working with these client groups, we show you the exact techniques to use, to make sure you're delivering a superior client experience.  Follow CPA Adam Shay's lead and watch the referrals flow!

Get real clients and make real money.

Business tax clients are everywhere, multiplying like rabbits and desperate for tax and accounting help.  We show you the most profitable client groups and give you ways to acquire those clients by saying the right things, to the right people, at the right time, in the right way.  Members who put our techniques into practice see results.  Marketing and sales gets a lot easier when you have a "starving crowd" of people who actually need your expertise!

Travel faster and farther.

Why spend years "wondering" about business taxes when we can give you the knowledge you need PRONTO?  Also achieving excellence in working with business tax clients is not something you take a course and then you're "done."  It's a lifelong pursuit and there is always room for improvement.  You'll get farther when you travel with friends.  Our responsive community and instructors actually care about helping you along your way.  This Program isn't just a "go-it-alone" training; it's a community of colleagues and friends that we're building for the long-term.

It Is Ridiculously Easy to Make this Math Work.



If you haven't been doing much business tax work, or you've been doing some but you're not charging market rates because you're not confident in your services (I've been there!), maybe you're unaware of how much elite-level tax pros charge for business tax work.


Maybe $997 for a training program of this caliber seems expensive to you?


We realize it's not $10, but pardon us if we just point out real quick:


Are you looking to "save money" or are you looking to MAKE MONEY?


Because in this New Era of Tax, those are two very different goals.


The Business Tax Verified is designed for tax pros who are ready to invest in yourself and look at ROI (Return on Investment) as a way of determining value.


So, let's talk about ROI, and how ridiculously easy it is to get from this Program:


Do one corporation or LLC tax return at the average fee and you're already profitable on your investment in this Program–literally, do ONE at the average fee, and you'll turn a profit.


Two, at the average fee, and you've doubled your investment.


Do 10 corporation or LLC returns at the average fee and you'll 10x your investment. 


Do 100 corp or LLC returns at the average fee and you'll 100x your investment.


Please, by all means, run the numbers!


Also worth considering, if price is a concern for you:


How much is it costing you RIGHT NOW to either:


1) Not do this work in the first place because you don't feel comfortable and confident, or

2) "Try" to do this kind of work without proper training and have it blow up in your face over and over again?


"Trying" to do this type of work without proper training is the most expensive proposition imaginable--constant errors, ugly client situations, repeated humiliation...


I know how it feels, because I've tried it before myself.


Doing business tax work is not a practice drill--this is real life!


Invest in yourself now and increase your confidence and earning power forever.


Or, if you don't want to invest in yourself and increase your confidence and earning power forever, if that's not a priority for you, or it's not the right time for you, that's OK too!



Yes, I'd love to help you enjoy the same or similar "level up" I've experienced in my own tax career, but we know and respect that we can't want this for you more than you want it for yourself.


YOU are the hero of your own tax career story.


We are just the "guide" that's here to help you get up the mountain safely, if you decide to go.


What we can say is this:


Every single Member we've seen PUT IN THE WORK to apply what this Program teaches you has seen stellar results.


Let me repeat that, so that it's crystal clear:








Who has PUT IN THE WORK to apply what this Programs teaches you has seen stellar results.


Are you next?
