accountant and tax prep

Instead of learning to do taxes by yourself, paying cheap software, paying expensive professionals, you could pay yourself and be trained in tax prep or accounting, at a basic level.

Then you could do it yourself?

Maybe doing your own taxes is actually okay. Do accountants do their own taxes?

Or maybe it is bad, like a lawyer trying to defend his or herself in court.

But it could be beneficial in the sense of having training and being able to be a better advocate for yourself if you do go with the free or paid options.

Seems like if you really wanted to do this, you could apprentice with a local tax prep person, that way you could see a lot of what is going on.

Or you could work in the field as extra labor for a bit.
