Liberty Tax Service marked a milestone this week as the company officially welcomed its thousandth Liberty franchise entity. In the last two tax seasons, Liberty Tax Service has doubled the number of tax returns prepared in outlets throughout the U.S. and Canada. Less than 50 franchise companies have more than 1,000 franchisees on Entrepreneur magazine's list of top 500 franchise organizations in the world. "This year has been an exhilarating time of record growth in many areas for Liberty Tax. As we hit the mark of 1,000 franchisees in our operating system, we continue our quest and drive to be the No. 1 tax company in the industry," said John Hewitt, chief executive and founder of Liberty Tax Service. For the fourth consecutive year, Accounting Today named Hewitt one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in the tax industry. This year, Entrepreneur magazine ranked Liberty Tax Service as the ninth fastest growing franchise opportunity, one of the top 20 low-investment opportunities, and No. 28 on its overall list of best franchises. In March, Accounting Today magazine ranked Liberty among the fastest growing on its list of the Top 100 Tax & Accounting Firms.
