Wanted: 5,000 Spanish-Speaking Tax Professionals

H&R Block has announced plans to hire more than 5,000 Spanish speaking tax professionals for the upcoming tax season.

Block indicates that it is gearing its staffing efforts towards meeting the needs of its more than 1 million Hispanic clients nationwide.

"Our clients are our first priority, and if they feel more comfortable talking about their tax or financial situation in Spanish, then it is our priority to serve them accordingly," said Carlos Ayala, manager of Hispanic programs at H&R Block. "Our goal for this tax season is to increase the number of Spanish-speaking professionals serving Hispanic clients by 40 percent."

Block is seeking both part-time and full time workers to fill these positions.

Starting next month, Block's 11-week Tax Training School will be offered in Spanish in many communities across the United States. The course is designed both for individuals with no tax knowledge as well as those who need a refresher on their own tax skills.
