JERSEY CITY, N.J., June 15, 2018
Jackson Hewitt Tax Service® announced today that offices across the country are offering two free promotions for a limited time this summer to help taxpayers, both new and existing clients, get the most from their tax returns.
Free 2019 Tax Reform Preview
Taxpayers looking to better understand which of the 119 tax reform provisions will impact them can take advantage of Jackson Hewitt’s Free 2019 Tax Reform Preview. This program will help taxpayers know the necessary changes to make now to maximize their tax returns in 2019.
“It’s always important to do a review, but this year it is essential,” said Mark Steber, Chief Tax Officer of Jackson Hewitt. “It’s our job to look at your unique and individual whole tax picture and show you where the new tax law will most likely impact you and help you avoid any surprises. With so many changes, there’s a lot of uncertainty for many taxpayers, including those who withhold the right amount of money each paycheck.”
A recent Jackson Hewitt survey found that 72% of respondents had not updated their paycheck withholdings since the IRS updated the withholding tables. The new tables were not released until early February, meaning that taxpayers or their employers’ payroll systems could be using incorrect numbers, which might affect their tax burden.
Free Refund Recheck
Taxpayers who used a different tax preparer or tax software can bring their most recent tax return to Jackson Hewitt and a tax pro will check to see if the filer missed any credits or deductions.
“At Jackson Hewitt, we’re working hard for hard-working taxpayers to make sure clients get every credit and deduction available to them,” said Alan D. Ferber, CEO of Jackson Hewitt. “Whether it’s through our quality tax preparation, innovative products and services, or with free promotions that prepare them for next year’s complicated tax reform or rechecking last year’s work – we dig deep to get taxpayers more.”
Both promotional offers are available through July 31, 2018 at participating locations.
