SiempreTax+ - The Nation’s First Tax Preparation Service Focused on Hispanics
Company tailors services to meet unique needs of fast-growing U.S. population
Virginia Beach, VA (January 30, 2015) – SiempreTax+, a national tax preparation brand, offers a new approach for addressing critical needs of the Hispanic community, including recent immigrants, such as tax preparation, state and federal applications for benefits and services, and more. The brand name conveys its customer service values – always accurate, open year-round, and always there for customers.
With more than 37 million Spanish speakers in the United States, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, Spanish is the most spoken non-English language in the country, a trend fueled by fast-growing Hispanic communities and workforces.
“When you look at the growth in the Hispanic market and the lack of reliable tax preparation services available to that market, you have to realize there’s an opportunity there to give customers what they need and desire,” said Liberty Founder and CEO John T. Hewitt. “Liberty Tax has always had a laserlike focus on customer service. That is what this new brand is all about – serving customers.”
SiempreTax+ trained tax professionals provide a wide array of services and solutions for customers in English and Spanish. In addition to tax preparation, SiempreTax+’s menu of services includes driver’s license assistance, notary services and immigration help. The company will help non-citizens apply for an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) at no charge. The ITIN offers a means to obtaining a credit card or opening a bank account. Perhaps even more important, the ITIN, along with filing taxes each year, helps establish a record of residency in the United States. An important service will be assistance in helping customers understand the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and their responsibilities under the law. Siempre will host ACA seminars and provide materials in Spanish that will be tailored to specific situations most likely to affect SiempreTax+ customers.
“SiempreTax+ recognizes the opportunity to serve a large and growing percentage of the U.S. population with diverse and unique needs,” said Carlos Perez, COO of SiempreTax+. “Our commitment is to execute the meaningful mission of serving Spanish-speaking customers.”
Taxpayers have until Wednesday, April 15, 2015, to file their 2014 tax returns and pay any tax due. This year’s return will include new questions to incorporate provisions of the Affordable Care Act (or ACA).
