The Proof 

Accounting Today named Liberty Tax® to its "Top Tax Firms" list from 2010 through 2014. Liberty Tax Service® has been ranked as one of the top franchise opportunities on Entrepreneur magazine’s annual Franchise 500 every year from 1998 to 2017. Liberty Tax Service® is the only tax franchise on the Forbes magazine's "Top 20 Franchises for the Buck" (2012).

Minority Opportunity

Our tax preparation franchise has consistently been recognized as a leader among all franchises, not just tax preparer opportunities. We have been awarded a top spot among franchises by magazines such as Black Enterprise, Poder/Hispanic Enterprise, and Military Times Edge.

“With Liberty Tax®, there is no barrier, regardless of your race, or of your sex, and I enjoy the vast opportunities Liberty’s delivered to our family.” – Tiffany D., Franchisee

Our Past and Future

Currently, there are more than 4,000 Liberty Tax Service® offices operating in the United States and Canada, where we operate as Liberty Tax Service® Canada. Liberty Tax Service® started in Canada on September 1, 1997, when John acquired a Canadian tax franchisor, U&R Tax Depot. In 1998, we became Liberty Tax Service® and opened five offices in the United States.
