PARSIPPANY, N.J., March 5, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- Jackson Hewitt®, the nation's second largest tax preparation firm, today launched Switch to Jackson Hewitt and Save $50, a national promotional program encouraging taxpayers to try Jackson Hewitt this tax season. Under this promotion, new clients who have their taxes prepared and filed at participating Jackson Hewitt offices through the tax filing deadline date of April 17, 2012, will pay $50 less than what they paid a competitor last year for tax preparation fees.*
"For any taxpayer with a receipt that shows they paid a competitor at least $150 last year for tax preparation fees, the Switch to Jackson Hewitt and Save $50 promotion provides a great incentive to come into a participating Jackson Hewitt office, or convenient Walmart kiosk location, to have their 2011 tax return prepared and filed," said Debra Dowd, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Jackson Hewitt Tax Service Inc. "In addition to the savings, this promotion lets taxpayers know exactly what they will pay for tax preparation before coming into a Jackson Hewitt office – and they will know it is less than what they paid someone else last year. The promotion also provides taxpayers with the opportunity to experience the friendly service offered by your neighborhood Jackson Hewitt tax pro."
