VIRGINIA BEACH, VA - (Marketwired - May 15, 2014) - U.S. Veterans Magazine (USVM) has accredited Liberty Tax Service, a subsidiary of JTH Holding, Inc. (NASDAQ: TAX), for their employment efforts for veterans. The results of USVM's 2014 survey were recently released after the magazine polled hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies for the evaluations. Once again, the magazine recognized Liberty Tax on the "Best of the Best" of the Nation's Top Veteran-friendly Companies list.
"What an honor to be recognized again by USVM as 'Best of the Best.' We have many franchise owners that are veterans.
