Our results speak for themselves
Virginia Beach, VA (Vocus) April 24, 2007
Liberty Tax Service today reported a 20% growth in number of tax returns prepared for fiscal year 2007. The increase is represented by over 1 million tax returns in the United States, and combined with the Canadian operation, over 1.3 million total returns. The million return milestone comes as the company prepares to celebrate its ten year anniversary. In addition to the growth in number of returns, Liberty Tax Service also posted a 12% growth in fees and a 35% growth in revenue.

We now have over 2400 offices in the United States and Canada, each year we add 300-500 new locations, we continue to bring in qualified franchisees to service our customers, and our numbers validate our system of doing business. I am pleased with this tax season," stated Hewitt.
