Two-day event will explore tax policy and its effect on Hispanic taxpayers

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., July 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liberty Tax, Inc. (NASDAQ:TAX)

Liberty Tax CEO John T. Hewitt will join 20 participants, including members of the Mexican government, on July 13-14 in San Antonio, Texas, for a high-level discussion on the most recent U.S. tax season and the effects of tax policy on Hispanic taxpayers. The event is hosted by the National Commission for the Protection and Defense of Users of Financial Services (CONDUSEF).

The two-day event will provide the perfect platform for Liberty Tax to share information about:

  • New rules regarding Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs)
  • Immigration enforcement and its effect on taxpayers
  • Tax credits

Liberty Tax is a leading tax preparation franchise, and the Company’s outreach to Hispanic taxpayers is robust. The Company has Hispanic-certified Liberty Tax Service locations and the SiempreTax+ national brand. SiempreTax+ offers tax preparation in both Spanish and English and delivers additional services that Hispanic consumers appreciate. These services include driver’s license application assistance, passport photos, and free application and renewal assistance for ITINs.

“We know and understand our customers, and we provide taxpayers with services they can trust,” said Hewitt. “This tax season made us aware of a few concerns among some Hispanic taxpayers, especially in regards to the increased immigration enforcement under the Trump administration.”

Hewitt will provide insights from the tax season and help the assembled participants understand tax credits and deductions that apply to taxpayers filing with an ITIN. He will also share information about SiempreTax+, which recently was named a Top New Franchise by Entrepreneur magazine.
