Taxes are part of our lives, and they're here to stay. The IRS estimates that more than 155 million individuals will file taxes in the U.S. in 2018. More than half typically use a professional tax preparer. That makes the tax business reliable and offers the opportunity for profitability. What gives Liberty Tax franchise owners the advantage is the knowledge and experience of our team, ongoing training and support and our iconic brand power.
Knowledge and Experience
There are many players in the tax preparation industry, but no one matches Liberty Tax when it comes to experience and knowledge. We have hands on leaders who always make time for franchisees and help them build their businesses. When you add in Liberty's training and support, you understand why Liberty Tax is one of Entrepreneur magazine's Top 500 franchises; a Bond's Top 100 Franchises, and the No. 1 non-food multi-unit brand for Multi-Unit Franchisee magazine.
Ongoing Training and Support
Taxes are complicated - for customers. For our franchisees, we provide the training and support needed to be successful. 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.
