Liberty Tax Service will ring in the 2015 tax season with Taxapalooza, a grand opening celebration on January 7 at more than 1,000 offices across the country. It’s not just food and fun that will be shared. Guests will be treated to free advice and information about the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which will have tax implications for the first time this season.
“I have said more than a few times that the Affordable Care Act is a game-changer,” said Liberty Tax CEO John T. Hewitt. “We opened many of our offices on November 15 to help people enroll in health insurance and apply for coverage exemptions. Now, before tax filing opens on January 20, we want to invite people in and help them really understand how this law will directly affect their taxes this year.” (emphasis added)
Taxapalooza will be a national party to celebrate the start of tax season and to assure taxpayers that Liberty Tax has the resources and the knowledge to handle all their tax issues, even with late changes to the tax code and the ongoing evolution of the ACA.
If Obamacare subsidies and/or penalties have made your tax situation complicated, use the services of a professional tax preparer. This is no place for amateurs.
If you want to complain, call your political representatives. If you want to profit off of the tax complications and chaos, purchase the publically traded tax preparation companies.
