The expansion plans are an effort to provide small and mid-sized CPA and Tax Firms with an alternative to the more traditional expensive old-style franchise systems, such as those of H&R Block (HRB), Jackson-Hewitt (JTX), and Liberty Tax Services. The unique methods have been in development since early 2000 with a series of innovative business systems that will provide independent tax firms with the benefits of a proven successful business program, while at the same time offer an extremely attractive low-cost license fee.
Tax Smart America® released its “Business Center” license program in cooperation with Entrepreneur® magazine with advertising on the popular magazines website. In addition, the company has also implemented numerous efforts to promote its unique models within the tax services industry now targeting minority owned businesses and tax professionals working within qualified economic redevelopment zones. A hallmark of the business model under the brand Tax Smart America® Business Center is to offer a successful business plan and operating system for tax firms that allow for a dynamic year round practice, with an emphasis on providing a wide range of valuable business support services offered to small business owners.
With estimates reported at more than 60,000 to 70,000 new business start ups each month, the company believes its plans are well positioned to attract tax professionals of all types away from competitors who seem to remain fixed on the more traditional franchise and corporate-owned store model, as well as independent tax firms who desire the benefits offered in the business license models. The introduction of the Minority Business Incentive Plan will provide yet another level of support to the continued growth of new businesses especially those within these targeted regions of the nation.

The company went on to state that it believes significant change is in the future with such explosive growth in the numbers of new small business start-ups. Under its license model, tax-professionals at all levels, will be able to create a unique competitive advantage over the more traditional seasonal tax preparation services of H&R Block (HRB), Jackson-Hewitt (JTX), and Liberty Tax Services.
In at least two cases where the focus seems to remain fixed on the seasonal and e-filing approach with a combination of franchise owned and corporate owned stores like those of H&R Block (HRB) and Jackson-Hewitt (JTX), the company sees this as an opportunity to create an alternative to independent tax professionals under the Tax Smart America® brand name.
The company maintains an operational test center at its headquarters in San Diego, CA where methods are actually tested, designed and implemented with real clients. However the company was clear to state that it has no plans to open and operate competitive locations to its future licensees.
