Liberty Tax Service

When you are the boss, you set your schedule – it’s that simple. One advantage Liberty Tax Service has over other franchises is that the tax season is just that – seasonal. This allows you to keep another job while building your franchise. Work hard for four months out of the year. The time leftover is time for your life. Take the rest of the year to pursue other interests, go on vacation, spend time with the family, or even focus on another business.

Put our proven system to work for your success. Sure, prior tax experience is nice, but it's not needed. We thoroughly and continually train you and your employees with all the knowledge and skills you need to succeed. The corporate operations are lean, not bureaucratic, which keeps Liberty Tax responsive to the market and to our franchisees. Each year, we review our operating systems and respond to any adjustments needed per our franchisees’ recommendations.

About

Owning a Liberty Tax franchise gives you freedom

When you are the boss, you set your schedule – it’s that simple. One advantage Liberty Tax Service has over other franchises is that the tax season is just that – seasonal. This allows you to keep another job while building your franchise. Work hard for four months out of the year. The time leftover is time for your life. Take the rest of the year to pursue other interests, go on vacation, spend time with the family, or even focus on another business.

Tax Knowledge is Nice But Not Needed

Put our proven system to work for your success. Sure, prior tax experience is nice, but it's not needed. We thoroughly and continually train you and your employees with all the knowledge and skills you need to succeed. The corporate operations are lean, not bureaucratic, which keeps Liberty Tax responsive to the market and to our franchisees. Each year, we review our operating systems and respond to any adjustments needed per our franchisees’ recommendations.

What Makes a Liberty Tax Franchise Different from Other Franchises?

Let us count the ways …

#1. We are led by the grandfather of the tax industry, John Hewitt.

With 46 years of experience in the tax preparation business, he has founded two of the three largest tax preparation corporations. He has led Liberty to open over 4,000 offices – more than three times faster than any tax company. Who better to partner with in business than the leader of the industry?

#2. We make taxes fun.

Our culture, our customer experience, even our mission statement is about having fun. We understand not everyone loves taxes (like we do) but it doesn’t mean they can’t have some fun when filing. When you drive by a Liberty Tax office, you see our Lady Liberty Wavers smiling and dancing, relaying our mission – to make taxes fun – for everyone.

#3. Commitment to Our Success.

“To have as many franchisees as John [Hewitt] has and as many offices open, he is extremely responsive. He called me back in 15 minutes after I called him at 5 a.m. I doubt a lot of CEOs of major corporations would respond that quickly.” Tiffany Dodson, NC franchisee. Constant communication is a theme at Liberty Tax. Liberty Tax does not succeed unless our franchisees do.

Our Marketing Makes its Mark

Liberty Tax’s marketing plan is designed to generate the maximum “top of mind” awareness to potential customers with the goal of growing your business and the Liberty brand. We provide you with all the tools you need to effectively market your franchise on a local level.

During tax season we have thousands of individuals dress up as their national icon, Lady Liberty costumes for the United States and Maple Leaf costumes for Canada, acting as live advertisements for Liberty Tax. We host roadside parties and give away hotdogs, coffee, popcorn and more! This form of outrageous marketing is paramount to the success of the Liberty Tax Service offices.

Aside from marketing, Liberty Tax firmly believes in giving back to the communities where our customers and employees live and work. Throughout the country, franchisees partner with local and national non-profits to raise funds and awareness for causes that are near and dear to their hearts. We also honor local heroes (teachers, law enforcement, medical personnel, military, etc.) through our appreciation weeks.

We are the fastest growing company in the tax industry. We are setting records and blazing new trails with innovative marketing strategies and exploding social media campaigns. Our success has been recognized globally and the industry experts are taking notice. Join us and come grow with us!

"Liberty Tax Service has a very supportive nature, as part of their culture. Everyone wants to help everyone else out. I can call a franchisee anywhere in the United States and I know that person is going to help me with whatever my question is, or they'll help me find someone who can help. It's a network of support."
Chris F - Decatur, IL - Franchisee

"Liberty's culture is all about the fun. There's an emphasis on treating your employees the right way and treating your customers the right way. No one is a number at Liberty. You want to have a fun time. Taxes can be stressful! You want to make sure you have a focus on fun in the stores and we're a company that does that."
David S - Greensboro, NC - Franchisee

"To me, the Liberty culture is all about having a business with the goal of helping your community, as well as helping your employees and helping yourself. I'm here to prepare taxes and that is my business. But my goal is to help people who can't help themselves. We've had food drives. We've worked for Soles for Souls to collect shoes. The rescue mission recently asked us to do macaroni and cheese drive. Liberty is all about my community."
Felicia B. - Evansville, IN - Franchisee

"I got rid of the limitations I had when I was working for someone else. Now I'm able to control my own destiny, and with Liberty, you can make as much as you are willing to put into it."
Bruce S. - Kansas City, MO - Franchisee

"Corporate gives you a very laid out step-by-step plan to follow. John (Hewitt) has his Top 10 list. You follow that. You execute. You use the resources available to you. The sky's the limit."
David S. - Greensboro, NC - Franchisee

"To have John (Hewitt) as a leader is incredible! We could not have done this on our own. We could have never thought of these things that have already been thought of for us. All we had to do was work the plan. And, whether it made sense or not. All we had to do was give it our best. And it works."
Marie C. - Little Rock, AK - Franchisee

"I choose to open a franchise, instead of Albino's Tax Service, because I needed to team up with a company with a proven record. Franchising to me is using someone's proven system that has worked for a period of time. I knew I didn't have enough time to re-invent the wheel and try new things out. Instead, let me team up with the people who know how to do it."
Albino C. - Houston, TX - Franchisee

"After I met the people at Liberty. And found out what Liberty was all about. And how the whole system worked. I thought, you know what, this is it. And it was. It felt like I came home."
Felicia B. - Evansville, IN - Franchisee

"With Liberty, I'm self-employed. I control my own schedule. I work a lot during tax season. But if I need to pick my kids up at school early one day or stay home in the morning one day. I can do it without having to ask permission. Then after tax season, I'm very flexible. I can spend as much time with my family, as I want."
David S. - Greensboro, NC - Franchisee- 2 Tax Seasons

" There are some things that could be scary, if I gave them a lot of deep thought and worried about them. But I know that John Hewitt has been extremely successful in this tax business. More so then anyone else. So I just followed his plan. And I knew that working his plan, which has proven successful, was all I had to do."
Chris F - Decatur, IL - Franchisee

"As a young entrepreneur, Liberty was very appealing for the simple fact that we needed our building blocks. Because we came from corporate America we didn't have the business management experience we needed to know to run a business. John (Hewitt) and his system puts that in front of you."
Lisa T. - Houston, TX - Franchisee

"We found Liberty in Entrepreneur and went to Liberty Discovery Day Conference. I would say maybe two hours into the conference, I knew this was for us, because of the way that John had put together the system in the last 41 years. It's amazing. It definitely gives you the building blocks of what it takes to be in a business and build a successful business."
Lisa T. - Houston, TX - Franchisee
