Created with the belief that we bring more value when we strive to be at our best, The Taxley Academy provides a 48-week career training program in tax law and consulting.

Our program is best suited for creative, analytical, strategic and integrity-centric professionals who are seeking careers that are meaningful, lucrative and flexible.

By providing fundamentally sound higher education in tax law and consulting, we aim to enhance career opportunities for diverse, talented, and aspiring professionals, while filling the critical education gap that has plagued the tax industry for over a century. 

Not at all! 

A huge benefit to having a career in tax law and consulting is that traditional college education is optional. You have the freedom to choose value-add education that specifically prepares you for a career in this field, which makes The Taxley Academy a smart choice.

However, depending on your career goals, like whether or not you aspire to have a corporate or government career, a college degree may be required.

The Taxley Academy was created by a practicing Enrolled Agent who understands the need for aspiring tax professionals, entrepreneurs and business professionals in general, to have a deeper education in tax law.

Creating what she wish existed, Anisha Bailey used her more than 20 years of professional experience to create a career training program that prepares students to help significantly improve the trajectory of financial literacy, successful entrepreneurship and legacy building.

Unlike many other programs, The Taxley Academy doesn’t teach students to simply pass a test, we teach students to have sustainable careers. As a part of this process, we also prepare students to pass the EA exam and earn their professional licensure, which, in aggregate, opens the doors for lucrative, meaningful and flexible careers in this space.

Our goal is to prepare our students to be among the top recruits at the Big 4 accounting firms, the IRS, law firms, non-profits, small businesses or even start their own companies, should that be of interest. 

We encourage are students to think big, which requires a high level of professionalism, intelligence and integrity.
