Starting my Tax Preparer business from home, which program would you recommend?

Highlighted

I currently work for an office that uses Lacerte Tax. I only work here on the weekends and I am going to start working at home during the weekdays for 2019 filing season. Which program would you recommend using? I wont be processing as many returns as the office, maybe 1 or two a day if that.

That depends on the type(s) of returns you tend to prepare, the volume, and your budget.  Each product has its pros and cons, so you'd have to weigh in based on these considerations.

Since you're familiar with Lacerte and only just starting out, PTO (which is driven by the Lacerte engine) could be a strong contender.  If you haven't tried it, sign up for a free trial, which allows you to prepare and preview returns without charge.
