Tax Smart America® today announced an important strategic alliance with technology partner, Talking Communities in the continued plans to deliver one of the nations most exciting alternatives to franchising in the tax services industry. Both companies announced today that a working agreement has been reached to deliver web-based conferencing to the growing family of Tax Smart America business centers, as well as plans to deliver these features to clients by providing an online conference center where clients can obtain interactive, live support for tax consulting, tax preparation, business plan development, as well as many other tax and financial services.

Talking Communities offers a multimedia interactive synchronous web conferencing tool proven to give our customers numerous capabilities in both their business and personal lives at a very affordable rate.

Tax Smart America® has been involved for several months in the development of a delivery support system that would enable it to provide interactive business coaching and practice development and coaching support to its many licensed business centers as an alternative to the old-style traditional franchising such as that of H&R Block (HRB), Jackson-Hewitt (JTX), and Liberty Tax Services.

With this next step the company will be able to establish a solid footprint in the market place to deliver its important business coaching and practice development programs to thousands of tax professionals within an interactive web-based conferencing center that features among many tools, white-board presentations, desktop control functions, recorded media systems of all events, and course presentations for virtually hundreds of continued education programs developed by the company. In addition the company will be able to provide client support services to its licensed offices in a live interactive web-based conference setting without the need to use traditional phone conferencing systems.

Company spokesman and CEO for Tax Smart America®, James Harnsberger stated, “we see this move as a significant step forward in our plans to build a business model that will eventually replace the traditional old-style franchising models in the tax services industry. In addition we will be moving this year to more than 50% of our client support activities conducted within the web-based conference center and we are proud of our relationship with Talking Communities and the excellent product they have developed for our plans.”

With nearly 200 tax professionals now in just a short eight weeks requesting license information kits about Tax Smart America® Business Coaching and Professional Development, the company feels it is well on its way to reaching its plans by the end of 2006 in time for the next tax season.

George Buys, CEO of Talking Communities stated, "With web-conferencing, the entire tax consulting industry will change. The ability to speak live to customers and display documents, spreadsheets, and tax forms in real time, right into the customers' homes opens a whole new frontier, and we are thrilled to be on that cutting edge in this alliance with Tax Smart America."

"Web-Conferencing will allow Tax Smart America to provide live assistance using VOIP technology right to the customer's computer as well as their growing number of business centers. Tax Professionals will be able to display various spreadsheets, tax forms, or any other document to their clients and work with them in a global, interactive platform", explained George Buys, CEO of Talking Communities.
