PARSIPPANY, N.J., March 16 // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Jackson Hewitt Tax Service(R) celebrates the exciting transformation of winter to spring with its national "March Magic" promotion. Jackson Hewitt(R) offices nationwide spread some magic of their own by providing customers a special Jackson Hewitt Collector's Edition Magic Johnson Autograph Card along with a discount on the cost of tax preparation.
"As we draw closer to the income tax filing deadline, we want to encourage tax filers and relieve some of their stress," said Debra Dowd, Vice President of Marketing, Jackson Hewitt Tax Service. "We are hopeful that the Magic Johnson autograph card and the savings on tax preparation will encourage customers to come in sooner rather than later and avoid the last-minute rush. We want to make sure that no one is leaving money on the table by missing out on the many credits and deductions that they may qualify for."
With more than 500 tax law changes this year, taxpayers may be eligible for deductions and credits that didn't apply to them in previous years. So far this year, the average refund received by taxpayers is 9 percent higher than it was at the same time last year, approximately $232 more, according to the Internal Revenue Service.* Jackson Hewitt customers can get their refunds even faster with electronic filing (IRS e-file) of their tax returns, offered free at all Jackson Hewitt Tax Service locations.
Jackson Hewitt tax preparers are available nationwide to assist taxpayers with the preparation and electronic filing of federal and state income tax returns.
