Roni Deutch Tax Centers to Provide Millions of Americans `Preventive Medicine for Tax Liability'
December 11, 2007 // Franchising.com // HOUSTON — Building off her celebrity status from TV commercials seen every day, in every major U.S. market, Roni Deutch, owner of the largest Tax Resolution Law Firm in the United States, has announced that the Roni Deutch Tax Centers® will open a franchise location in Houston, offering the community competent, professional tax return preparation.
"I look forward to opening a Roni Deutch Tax Center because this business already has a built in customer base of millions," said Satish Raghavan, who owns the Roni Deutch Tax Center of Houston alongside his business partner Vidhya Balasubramanian. "Every year, the number of individual tax returns increases so there is a demand for tax preparation, and I want to provide customers with the best service available to help them file correctly and with their best interests in mind."
After helping tens of thousands of people save millions in IRS debt over the past 16 years through her California-based tax resolution law firm, Deutch is on a double-pronged mission – ironically, to eliminate the need for tax resolution by providing Americans with competent, professional tax return preparation, and to provide a recession-proof business opportunity for entrepreneurs seeking a piece of the booming tax preparation industry. According to the IRS, 229 million tax returns will be prepared in 2007 and that number is expected to increase to almost 250 million by the year by 2012. And each year more and more people are turning to professional tax preparers. That number is currently at 62 percent and growing by about 1 percent each year.
"Over the past 16 years I have seen the devastating effect and hardships that sloppy, unprofessional and inaccurate tax return preparation can have on people's lives," Deutch said. "I've helped people with their IRS tax problems, but now I want to prevent them from getting into trouble in the first place. Roni Deutch Tax Centers will help millions of people avoid costly mistakes they would otherwise have to spend years paying for. I'm calling it preventive medicine for tax liability."
The first Roni Deutch Tax Center, opened by Deutch herself in June 2006 in Fair Oaks, CA, has already prepared more than 6,000 tax returns.
