Eagle Tax Service Franchise Our Customers
Each year, millions of Americans file their taxes. According to IRS data, 2 out of 3 took a standard deduction on their 2006 return, meaning it was a simple filing. More than 60% also paid a preparer to file their taxes for them. Many of these customers are seeking fast access to a refund on their Federal and State returns and view it as an annual windfall. The average individual refund for the 2006 filing year was $2,287.
Our franchisees are independent business people who are looking for an established system and guidance on how to operate a successful business without the trial and error associated with doing it on their own. It has often been said that they are in business for themselves, but not by themselves. They enjoy the freedom and rewards of operating their own businesses while limiting the risks associated with a start-up opportunity.

What kind of background do I need to be successful in this franchise?
The ideal Eagle Tax franchise candidate understands the value of operating a business within a franchise system. He or she recognizes the need for local marketing and business development and enjoys getting out into the community and promoting the business. Some basic financial management experience is helpful, whether basic accounting or even self-prepared tax returns in the past. Basic computer skills are also a big plus. An ideal candidate has good communication skills and enjoys working with people while providing a high level of customer service. This business can be successful whether the owner is actively participating in the operation of the center or has a more passive ownership style and uses key employees to manage the center.
What kind of training and support will I receive?
Initial training is an intensive, one-week seminar held at our National Training Center in Philadelphia, PA. This training covers all aspects of products and services offered, operational training for the day-to-day business management and bookkeeping issues, technical training on the computer system and software as well as local marketing techniques and use of existing marketing plans.
