Jackson Hewitt(R) to Operate in 2,800 Walmart U.S. Store Locations

Expands Walmart Distribution Channel By 40%; Enters Into New Multi-Year Walmart Agreement

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Dec. 7, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- Jackson Hewitt Tax Service Inc. ("Jackson Hewitt"), the nation's second largest tax preparation firm, today announced that it will operate in approximately 2,800 Walmart U.S. stores in the upcoming 2012 tax season. The 2,800 store figure represents a nearly a 40% increase versus the roughly 2,000 Walmart retail locations that Jackson Hewitt operated in last year. Jackson Hewitt's expanded Walmart distribution channel results from a new multi-year agreement between Jackson Hewitt and Walmart that recently went into effect.

"We are both excited and pleased to announce the extension and expansion of our longstanding successful relationship with Walmart," stated Philip H. Sanford, president and chief executive officer of Jackson Hewitt. "Our record of professionally, effectively and successfully operating our Walmart distribution channel over the past several years has been noteworthy, which is a testament not only to the outstanding efforts of our franchisees and company-owned operations managers, but also to the spirit of collaboration and shared goals we have forged with the Walmart team. We are coming off of our best year ever in our Walmart operations, and look forward to building on our Walmart success in the 2012 tax season by delivering outstanding tax preparation service and convenience to clients and Walmart associates in Walmart U.S. store locations nationwide."

Jackson Hewitt expects to operate in approximately 6,500 locations nationwide for the 2012 tax season.
