Why Is Happy Tax Your #1 Solution?

One very happy customer at a time, we’re revolutionizing the way taxes are filed by utilizing cutting-edge technology and elevating the tax filing experience by providing exceptional customer service.

As a franchise owner, you have the freedom to choose how you’d like to connect with your clients, including house visits, office drop-ins, video calls, or meetings at your favorite coffee shop. You’ll have the pleasure of providing exceptional, concierge-quality service, providing convenience for the client and boosting your reputation.

Our CPAs are readily accessible and will gladly provide answers to challenging tax questions. Put simply; we wanted to make the process of filing taxes a simpler, happier one for everyone involved.

Your average CPA doesn’t make house calls. Private CPAs can cost an arm and a leg. Big box tax preparation chains often provide service that borders on impersonal.

At Happy Tax, we’re BIG on providing stellar customer service. But what really sets us apart is our FREE audit assistance. Each Happy Tax Franchisee will have access to our licensed CPAs who dig deep to find savings and ensure that each customer receives every last cent available. And if the customer gets audited for any reason, every tax filing you help to prepare comes with our full audit department assistance. For FREE.

In contrast, most tax preparers who offer audit assistance might have only one person who can assist with an audit. They’ll also charge a pretty penny for that “luxury.”

As a Happy Tax franchisee, you’re not only providing a superior tax filing experience; you’re providing a better quality of service and peace of mind. Your service sells itself!

Happy Tax is the simple and affordable way to get you started on that path to success! Never file a tax return again, you source the return using our revolutionary mobile app and our expert CPA’s do the rest.

Isn’t it time you tried something different? Something to build toward your future, instead of making someone else filthy rich while you exchange your blood, sweat, and tears for pennies?

Who Is A Good Fit To Be A Franchisee?

If your goal is to become a full-time entrepreneur, becoming a Happy Tax franchisee will give you the ability to ramp up your business to a level where you can comfortably quit your old job. You’ll be able to focus on doing what you enjoy instead of doing what you have to do. Plus, the tax business is seasonal, so you’ll have plenty of time for your family, friends, favorite activities and important endeavors.
Happy Tax is the perfect way to start your own business. Many of the typical business risks are diminished because you don’t need any inventory, don’t need to sign costly leases, and won’t need to recruit, hire or train costly staff at the very beginning.
So are we! It could be a perfect fit. We’ll give you the tools and knowledge to learn the industry and help you to become a successful financial industry entrepreneur.

Happy Tax franchisees help people by making sure their taxes are prepared accurately. That’s easy to do because our Happy CPAs expertly prepare all of our tax returns.

You will be the one interacting with the customers, guiding them through the process, and ensuring a positive experience. Your strong people skills combined with our Happy CPAs tax code knowledge and math skills are what make all the difference for our customers.

Common Questions and Answers

Our franchise fee is $25,000. Financing is available.
Our franchise agreements are 3 years for franchisees.
You get access to use our trademarks, the ability to utilize our patent-pending process and technology, industry-leading training provided on our robust intranet, cutting-edge marketing as well as support and coaching from our executive team. You also get peace of mind knowing that your clients’ tax returns are prepared by an expert CPA, and become part of a community knowing of passionate, customer-driven franchisees across the country
A key selling point of our service is its convenience. A CPA will not typically go out to meet with customers; the customer has to go to them. Often, the customer might sit in a waiting room and, in many cases, might pay a high fee for the professional service. Our patent-pending process and technology has enabled us to lower overhead and make our fees much more affordable and transparent. For example, we only have 4 prices: $100, $200, $300 or $500, depending on the complexity of the tax return. While some CPAs charge in that range, many charge significantly more for their services.
Our pricing, in line with the industry, depends on the complexity of the return. Our prices are $100, $200, $300 or $500. We have no hidden fees; our pricing is completely transparent.
A franchisee will not be required to have any tax software since all of our returns will be prepared by our CPAs. We provide secured apps and programs to our franchisees in order to insure the security of our clients’ data and help increase ease and efficiency.
While there is never a way to categorically prevent fraud, Happy Tax takes this issue very seriously. We take every possible precaution and measure to secure our clients’ information. Our patent-pending process and technology includes 2048 bit SSL security to eliminate the trace of private personal information. The data is never stored locally on a tablet or other computer.
Franchisees who do not have storefronts will be allowed to market and conduct business anywhere in the US. Franchisees who have storefronts will be given a geographic territory of approximately 50,000 people.
Yes, they are able to represent clients before the IRS and the ones preparing California returns are CTEC registered.
Your clients will be able to get their questions answered directly from you, our customer support follow up call, or using our revolutionary mobile app chat feature.
Yes, we offer in house financing as well as assistance with our vendors who can provide direct financing to you as well. You can also use your 401k to invest.
No, we do not charge any renewal fees
As a franchisor, the FTC and state law regulates when and where we can make financial performance representations. One way to think about this question is to estimate how many clients and returns you feel you can handle using our brand and resources. You can earn between $65 and $375 for each tax return completed based on our standard pricing.
Our royalties are the lowest in the industry, ranging from 10-20% depending on volume. The only other fee charged to franchisees by us is the tax prep fee for preparing the return with our CPAs. These fees range from $20-$50 per return, depending on complexity.
The safety of our franchisees is very important to us. While we encourage house calls to make the process as convenient as possible for your clients, they are not required. In many cases, your clients will be friends, family or co-workers (or those referred to you by them), so you’ll have some type of connection and level of trust.
We’ll teach you. Once you’re a franchisee, you’ll take our training online and learn our marketing techniques. Word of mouth, social media, email marketing, referrals, and networking events are just some of the many ways to build your customer base. Don’t worry – we’ll show you how.
Yes, we require you to contribute $1,000 to the national advertising fund in your first year and 2% of your revenue each year thereafter. We also require that you spend a minimum of $1,000 per tax season on local advertising, marketing and promotional programs. During your first tax season, you must spend $2,000 to help get the word about your new business. This measure is based on years of industry experience. We’ll teach you which marketing and advertising methods offer a good return on investment to help your business grow.
Our CEO has successfully operated 100 storefront tax offices across the country. He started out in the tax business back in 2003 and has been an entrepreneur since 1998. He has personally coached hundreds of tax business owners and franchisees in his role as an area developer and consultant. His tax offices have consistently grown year over year and he has won many awards for the operation of his tax business.
We are staffed with an internal audit team to handle all audits. This gives your clients peace of mind and affords you the confidence that the services we provide are guaranteed.
To put it simply, above all else, when you become a Happy Tax Franchisee, you get amazing support.

You’ll tap into our brand, our experience, our marketing tools, our audit team, our knowledgeable CPAs, and our innovative technology. All of this gives you the peace of mind knowing that your clients are well taken care of by licensed professionals.

You’ll also get to focus your time and talents on acquiring customers. Our franchisees do NOT prepare the returns, and yet they are the primary beneficiaries of the business. This isn’t employee work to make someone else rich. This is YOUR business where you pocket the lion’s share of the profit. By taking the tax preparation portion off your plate, we help you keep your eye on the ball and allow you to concentrate on growing your business.
