You Do Life. We Do Taxes
On September 1, 1997, tax legend John Hewitt acquired a Canadian tax franchisor, U&R Tax Depot. In 1998, the company opened five offices in the U.S. and became Liberty Tax Service®. Today, we have more than 4,000 Liberty Tax Service® offices in the United States and Canada, and we prepare more than two million individual tax returns annually. Our headquarters are located in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Known for the total support we provide our franchisees, our tax return preparation franchise is consistently recognized as a leader among all franchises, not just personal income tax-based businesses. We've been ranked as one of the top franchises on Entrepreneur magazine's annual Franchise 500 list every year since 1998, including a Best of the Best award in 2016. We're also listed in Bond's Top 100 Franchises
Our mission remains the same as when we first opened: offer the flexibility of a personal tax consultant and the security of a large, established company. We continue to provide our unique range of tax preparation services and expand our presence in the competitive personal income tax industry.
Why Our Franchise?
- Low Operating Costs for High Profits: More than half of all taxpayers used a tax preparer last year, making tax preparation a reliable small business opportunity. Tax preparation is important to all community members, and franchisees can earn money while providing a vital service to neighbors. Our support and planning tools make Liberty Tax® a low cost franchise, and because tax preparation is a service-based and seasonal business, inventory and overhead are low.
- Innovative Marketing Tools: We don't wait for customers to come to us – we go to them. Our army of Lady Liberty wavers is iconic in the tax industry and in communities where Liberty Tax® offices are located. Lady Liberty does more than wave; she visits neighboring businesses, attends community events and generates business by spreading the word about Liberty's great services. She's just one of many low-cost or free marketing tools available to Liberty Tax® franchisees.
- We Make Taxes Fun: When you franchise with Liberty Tax®, you don't just buy a business, you buy a business culture that values hard work and having fun while also providing a vital service to your community. Our Mission Statement says it all: "Set the Standard; Improve Each Day; Have Some Fun!" Liberty Tax® balances strong growth, best business practices, social responsibility, and a fulfilling life experience for our franchisees.
