Why Should You Start You Own Tax Business?

It’s Better than a franchise

Here are just some of the reasons why starting your own tax preparation business makes better sense than buying into a tax business franchise. Having your own tax business means:

  1. AVOID costly start up fees
  2. AVOID royalty payments
  3. AVOID issues with financing assistance
  4. AVOID geographic restrictions
  5. AVOID issues with franchisor legal recourse should something go wrong
  6. CREATIVE CONTROL – you get to do things your way
  7. NO contract requirements–do you know what you’ll be doing years from now?
  8. NO problems with insufficient support from the franchisor
  9. REASONABLE COSTS for supplies—no franchisor mark-ups
  10. FREEDOM for non-compete provisions should you want out of the franchise
  11. AVOID advertising fees that may not help your franchise
  12. AVOID losing your business due to unreasonable termination of your franchise
