Knowledge and Experience

There are many players in the tax preparation industry, but no one matches Liberty Tax Service when it comes to experience and knowledge at the top. Our CEO has been a tax man for nearly 50 years, founding two of the three largest tax preparation franchises. He even invented tax preparation software that helped revolutionize the industry. He’s a hands-on leader, always making time for franchisees and helping them build their businesses. That access, along with Liberty’s training and support, has made Liberty Tax one of Entrepreneur magazine’s Top 500 franchises; a Bond’s Top 100 Franchises, and a No. 1 non-food multi-unit brand for Multi-Unit Franchisee magazine.

We assist in site selection and provide demographic tools that help franchisees build customer profiles and target different categories of customers with pinpoint accuracy.


Iconic Brand Power

Our Statue of Liberty Wavers are a symbol of tax time in the U.S. Our franchisees get immediate access to that unmatched brand recognition and creative marketing tools and strategies. Add to that our commitment to community and customer service, and you’ve got the recipe for success in this seasonal business.
