Jackson Hewitt(R) Launches 'Big Checks for Charity' Campaign to Raise Money for Charities Nationwide

Month-Long Campaign Provides Discounts to Tax Filers and Donations to Charities

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Feb. 28, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- Jackson Hewitt Tax Service Inc., the nation's second largest tax preparation company, today announced the launch of "Big Checks for Charity," a month-long campaign to raise money for various charities across the United States.

Throughout the month of March, taxpayers who visit participating Jackson Hewitt® will receive a discount on tax preparation while also helping to support a local or national charitable organization.

Participating Jackson Hewitt offices will offer coupons to taxpayers with varying discounts depending upon when a return is filed in March. For every tax return prepared, the local office will then make a set donation either to a charity within the community or a national charity.

Taxpayers can contact a local office to learn if they are participating and where they can obtain a coupon. To find a local Jackson Hewitt location, taxpayers can visit the online office locator posted at www.jacksonhewitt.com or call 1-800-234-1040.

"Jackson Hewitt has dedicated the entire month of March to this special program as a way to give back – both to our clients for choosing to work with Jackson Hewitt and to charities within the surrounding communities of our thousands of locations around the country," said Philip H. Sanford, president and chief executive officer, Jackson Hewitt Tax Service Inc. "For taxpayers who have not yet filed their 2010 tax returns, 'Big Checks for Charity' is a wonderful way to take care of this important annual task while helping to make a difference and raise money for a variety of worthy causes."
