We are an innovator in the tax industry, and our mission is to offer our hardworking clients access to simple, easy, low-cost solutions to manage their taxes and tax refunds. Our services and products are all delivered with the personal, knowledgeable touch of our Jackson Hewitt Tax Pros.

We are an “In Demand” Business
As long as hardworking Americans need to pay income tax, there will be clients to serve. We stand behind our work, offering 100% Accuracy and Maximum Refund Guarantees. Our customers have access to a suite of unique financial products through our network of partners, along with numerous disbursement options for their tax refunds.

Tax Preparation is a Stable Industry
If you were to design the perfect franchise opportunity, you’d put it in an established and stable category, eliminate “shrinkage” and “spoilage,” and minimize your up-front exposure.

According to the IRS, more than 152 million Americans filed tax returns in 2017, with nearly 60% of all individual tax returns being prepared by a paid tax professional.
