Liberty Tax® is one of the fastest-growing tax preparation franchises and has prepared almost 18 million individual income tax returns in more than 4,000 offices and online.

Liberty Tax Service® started in Canada on September 1, 1997, when founder John Hewitt acquired a Canadian tax franchisor, U&R Tax Depot. In 1998, the company became Liberty Tax Service® and opened 5 offices in the United States. Liberty Tax Service® is headquartered in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and continues to expand, offering personal income tax services in an ever-growing list of locations nationwide.

The knowledge of the management team and headquarters staff spans over many years of tax and franchise industry experience. That's a powerful resource when it comes to developing systems, training programs, and marketing strategies. This experience is what has driven us to such remarkable growth in a short period of time.
