How does Jackson Hewitt protect my personal information? To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.
How does Jackson Hewitt collect my personal information?

We collect your personal information, for example, when you

  • show us your government-issued ID or give us your contact information
  • provide employment information

  • affiliates from using your information to market to you
  • sharing for nonaffiliates to market to you

State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing. See below for more on your rights under state law.
