"The future of the tax prep industry"
New York City, NY (PRWEB) March 25, 2015
A new alternative to both DIY/online and face-to-face tax franchise methods is now available. Taxportunity, a New York City startup, has launched a website that recreates the experience of going to a brick and mortar tax prep franchise. Personal communication channels and document sharing over the internet has significantly evolved over the last 5 years opening the doors for this new method. Customers are even able to take a picture of their tax documents with their smart phone and text directly to our CPAs. Recent changes in electronic signature protocol by the IRS is also a reason this new method is now available. Due to the significant cost savings from not having hundreds of retail locations, this service can be offered at a significant discount, as compared to traditional, full-service tax prep franchises.
Taxportunity is committed to addressing recent concerns over identity theft, and in doing so provides a knowledge-based identity verification software solution, powered by Experian®.
This new method hopes to gives customers a great alternative to traditional, brick-and-mortar tax prep franchises. The Company founder, George Birrell, CPA, speculates that this new method will eventually replace traditional brick-and-mortar retail locations much like retail video stores such as Blockbuster® were replaced in the 2000’s. He even thinks that this method can take some of the market share of the traditional do-it-yourself websites as customers realize the price differential between DIY sites and this new method is much smaller than expected.
