New Client Growth and Same Store Sales Drive Market Share Gains and Revenue Growth

JERSEY CITY, NJ - (Marketwired - May 2, 2017) - Jackson Hewitt Tax Service® today announced the company's results for this tax season, posting market share gains, 4 percent total revenue growth, 6.6 percent increase in same store sales and 1.7 percent increase in same store returns, significantly outperforming the IRS decline of 0.7 percent.

"We saw taxpayers recognize the value of working with a tax professional, and we are proud of how our people and franchise partners served our clients," said Alan D. Ferber, CEO, Jackson Hewitt Tax Service. "Our initiatives to combat late refunds for hardworking Americans, aggressive marketing to both in-store and online filers, and attractive promotions were a winning combination."

Jackson Hewitt attributes the season's success to a number of strategies, including the company's marketing which highlighted the benefit of assisted tax preparation over do-it-yourself options, innovations in Express Refund Advance and the "Better Than Free" promotion, which effectively lifted Jackson Hewitt above the numerous free offerings in the marketplace. Overall, the company experienced strong results all season driven by double-digit new client growth and an increase in client retention.

Strong franchise sales also supported the company's business growth. Jackson Hewitt added 36 new franchise groups, which purchased more than 125 new and existing franchise territories across the country.
