Knowledge and Experience

There are many players in the tax preparation industry, but few can match Liberty Tax Service when it comes to experience and knowledge. Our founder invented tax preparation software that helped revolutionize the industry. And our CEO, Ed Brunot, always makes time for franchisees to help them build their businesses. That support from the top, along with Liberty’s corporate programs and training, 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 start with a one-week intensive course and continue different training modules in sales, marketing and tax preparation throughout the year. 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.
