Liberty Tax Service started in Canada on September 1, 1997, when CEO John Hewitt acquired a Canadian tax franchisor, U&R Tax Depot. In 1998, the company became Liberty Tax Service and opened five offices in the United States. Liberty Tax Service is headquartered in Virginia Beach, Virginia and continues to expand, offering personal income tax service and more in an ever-growing list of locations nationwide.
Experience drives every Liberty Tax consultant, and it is experience that has made us capable of such remarkable growth in a short period of time. The knowledge of the management team and headquarters staff totals over 600 years of tax and franchise industry expertise. That's a powerful resource when it comes to developing systems, training programs, and marketing strategies.
