Liberty Tax recently celebrated the military veterans who have found success in a second career as owners of franchise offices throughout the country. Veterans like Chris Cho, a former US Army Sergeant, have turned their military training and discipline into success in the world of taxes.
"I've been lucky enough to achieve great success," says Cho, who operates two franchises along with his wife. "My military background has helped me maintain the professionalism, discipline, and strength necessary to create a successful tax business." Cho's offices in San Antonio, Texas serve a variety of clients throughout the year. During the main tax season, he employs some 20 people and prepares hundreds of returns. During the off season, his office serves people with self-employment income, small business owners, and others whose tax situation requires them to file beyond the usual January-April window.
Liberty Tax has long been known for its veteran-friendly atmosphere; Liberty is a member of IFA's VetFran, and incentives are available for military veterans interested in becoming franchisees. "We are thrilled to see our military veterans experience success in the tax world," says John Hewitt, CEO and Founder of Liberty Tax Service. "Liberty Tax Service has always stood behind our men and women in uniform, and we're honored to support so many veterans as franchisees."
Liberty Tax has franchises available throughout the US and Canada. The company is noted for its rapid, successful expansion and for its supportive environment with extensive training for franchisees. With these advantages, Liberty Tax Service is poised to continue its trend of rapid growth and help more veterans find a new career after the military.
