Who finds the location for the franchise?
Our dedicated, professional search team can help find your optimal location. The team includes a Liberty Tax® Site Selector to offer advice and guidance on your office location. We take into account size of the space, visibility, accessibility by car or public transportation, and other related factors. As further protection for you, a lease should not be signed until after your office site is approved by the search team.

After your initial training and education, the corporate team will provide ongoing support, including our annual convention, networking meetings with other Liberty Tax® franchisees, store visits, business tools, an intranet site designed specifically for franchisees, newsletters, and a toll-free support center.

Regional marketing plans increase brand recognition, while effective local marketing campaigns and daily marketing conference calls during the tax season help increase foot traffic to your office.
