These trends are reinforced by the number of new clients who reached out to TaxMasters for tax help in the first quarter of 2010.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 11, 2010
TaxMasters, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: TAXS), the IRS tax relief company, today announced that the company engaged a record number of new clients in the first quarter, from January 1 through March 31, 2010. The number of new clients in January 2010 represents a 22% increase over the number of new clients in January 2009. In addition, the Company reported 30% and 34% increases in new clients for the months of February and March 2010 respectively. For the entire first quarter 2010, the Company reported a 29% increase in new client engagements over the number of new clients in the first quarter 2009. This three-month increase builds on the momentum in new client growth that TaxMasters experienced throughout the fourth quarter of 2009.
The company expects new client growth, in general, to continue for the remainder of 2010, although not necessarily at the same pace as in the first quarter of 2010. To meet the growth in clients TaxMasters has hired additional personnel, with the total number of TaxMasters employees up 30% from 224 in March 2009 to 323 in March 2010.
“We continue to see increased demand for tax relief services, and a growing number of individuals and businesses dealing with tax problems throughout the U.S.,” says Patrick Cox, Founder, President and Board Chairman of TaxMasters, Inc. “These trends are reinforced by the number of new clients who reached out to TaxMasters for tax help in the first quarter of 2010.”
Cox continued, “Going forward, we believe that larger economic factors, as well as increased collection efforts by the IRS, will continue to drive demand for our services, as taxpayers look to get back into tax compliance and resolve other tax problems. We are confident that the staffing level increases and corporate infrastructure expansion we undertook in 2009 will meet anticipated growth as we continue to execute our strategic plan for TaxMasters.”
