ABOUT OUR HISTORY
See why we’ve become a leader over the last quarter century.
On September 1, 1997, Canadian tax franchisor U&R Tax Depot was acquired. In 1998, the company opened five offices in the U.S. and became Liberty Tax Service®. In 2021, Liberty Tax Service was acquired by NextPoint Financial, an all-inclusive marketplace for financial services empowering hardworking and underserved consumers and small businesses to get to the “NextPoint” in their financial futures.
Today, we have more than 2,700 Liberty Tax Service®© offices in the United States and Canada. For the 2020 tax year, we prepared more than 1.2 million individual tax returns. Our headquarters are located in Hurst, TX.
Our mission remains the same as when we first opened: offer the flexibility of a personal tax consultant and the security of a large, established company. We continue to provide our unique range of tax preparation services and expand our presence in the competitive personal income tax industry.
Known for the total support we provide our franchisees, our tax return preparation franchise is consistently recognized as a leader among all franchises, not just personal income tax-based businesses. We’ve been ranked as one of the top franchises on Entrepreneur magazine’s annual Franchise 500 list multiple years, including a Best of the Best award in 2016. We’re also listed in Bond’s Top 100 Franchises. Accounting Today named Liberty Tax® to its Top Tax Firms list in 2016 and 2017. We’re the #1-ranked non-food multi-unit franchise by Multi-Unit Franchisee magazine, and we’ve been awarded a top spot among franchises by Black Enterprise, Poder/Hispanic Enterprise, and Military Times Edge.
Our CEO Brent Turner continues our reputation for excellence by developing and implementing strategies that directly contribute to maintaining our competitive edge in the tax business. Mr. Turner has 25 years of experience in the tax industry in multiple functions.
