From medical and legal help to financial and tax providers, the professional service industry revolves around trust. Customers choose their service providers based on many factors, including cost, convenience, and perceived effectiveness. But without a trustworthy reputation, it’s nearly impossible to get people through the door.
Happy Tax franchisees can stand behind the company’s stellar reputation. That’s because we’ve worked hard to show the American taxpayers that we are more than just the best and most innovative tax preparation service in the game. We’re also a network of professionals who care deeply about making sure our friends, family, and associates get the tax help they deserve. Unfortunately, our competitors can’t all say the same.
Customers Need Tax Services They Can Trust
In 2013, the U.S. Department of Treasury shut down a company called “Instant Tax Service,” which at the time was the fourth -largest tax preparation business in the country. The federal judge reviewing the case found that the company had a culture of fraud, and it relied on deception to scam the public. Sadly, it appears that Instant Tax Service was not the only company taking advantage of its customers at that time. In fact, popular tax preparation service H&R Block has a dark history of fraud and deceit.
H&R Block has demonstrated a history of untrustworthiness. In 2001, a federal court ordered H&R Block to pay over $500,000 in fees and penalties for circulating misleading advertisements. But the problems didn’t stop there. H&R Block was slapped with another class action lawsuit in 2006 based on its dubious refund anticipation loan program. Then, in 2011, the company settled a case brought in New York seeking damages for five counts of false advertising.
Happy Tax knows that reputation is everything. This is something that the corporate giants of tax preparation seemed to have forgotten. But our business relies on our stellar reputation, and we work hard to protect it.
