PARSIPPANY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jackson Hewitt Tax Service® today announced a new national program to help consumers get off to a stronger financial start in 2015. Jackson Hewitt will offer a $200 Refund Advance program that has no interest or service fees, and requires no credit check when you file your taxes with Jackson Hewitt. The program starts January 2nd and runs through February 28th at most of its 6,300 locations around the United States.1
“Making funds available on a no cost basis to consumers before the IRS opens is one way we’re working hard for the hardest working Americans,” said David Prokupek, CEO of Jackson Hewitt. “This is their hard-earned money, and we are the only national tax preparation service that has found a way to give them an advance on their refund sooner rather than later at no cost and with no credit checks.”
Jackson Hewitt expects the program to provide over 500,000 zero percent interest, no fee, refund advances to consumers beginning January 2nd when companies across the United States begin issuing W-2’s. The Refund Advance will be provided on a pre-paid Visa Card the same day the client completes their taxes with Jackson Hewitt. To enhance convenience, Jackson Hewitt will offer to provide the remainder of taxpayer refund on that pre-paid Visa card that can be used everywhere Visa is accepted.
“We know that our clients rely on their tax refunds to handle holiday bills and year-end obligations,” said Vada Hill, Chief Marketing Officer of Jackson Hewitt. “We are committed to developing low/no cost products to tell our client ’yes‘ versus ’no‘ whenever possible when it comes to them accessing their hard earned money; so we have developed a product with no credit checks and high approval rates.”
Jackson Hewitt is committed to robust product innovation to make the lives of their hard working clients a bit easier, like allowing tax clients to start their return beginning January 2nd with their final paystub and then completing the filing as soon as W2s are available. Clients can take a picture of their W2 and upload it to MyJH.com to complete their return without even returning to the office.
Starting on Friday, January 2, customers across the country can either make an appointment with a Jackson Hewitt tax professional or simply walk into one of 6,300 Jackson Hewitt locations around the United States. Jackson Hewitt clients get the security of knowing the company stands behind its work with its Biggest Refunds & 100% Accuracy Guarantees. Further, Jackson Hewitt tax preparers make a personal commitment for care and 100% accuracy, with a pledge to handle every tax return like it’s their own.
