Virtual, personal income tax preparation platform Taxhub combines the ease of having a professional finalize and file your return with the cost savings of not having the expense of a brick and mortar site. Below is our interview with George Birrell, Co-Founder of Taxhub:
Q: George, what is taxhub and how does it work?
A: Taxhub began out of the need to solve the two main problems in personal tax return industry. Consumers have two choices when it comes to getting their taxes done. They can either go to a traditional franchise tax prep firm and get charged an arm and a leg for something that take then less than an hour to do or they can attempt the cheaper option and go through the extremely frustrating task of going on line and trying to do it themselves. The major players in this industry have been extremely slow to change their m.o. and provide a solution that addresses both the high cost of having a paid preparer file your taxes and the frustration of trying to do it yourself online.
Q: What are main benefits of using your tax preparation platform?
A: Taxhub combines the ease of having a professional finalize and file your return with the cost savings of not having the expense of a brick and mortar site. Our unique process enables significant overhead savings. These savings are passed on to you. You end up having the reassurance of tax professional file your taxes at more than half the cost!
Q: How would you convince the reader to start using taxhub?
A: Our unique selling proposition is simple, you get the same expertise as going to a CPA office or tax franchise like H&R Block but at around half the price because our business model does not require hundreds of retail offices that sit vacant 9 months out of the year. Getting your taxes done through an online portal working with a professional saves a lot of overhead expense and those savings are passed on to the consumer. Communication is done through phone or video chat and document sharing is done through many channels at the option of the customer. They can even take a picture and text a W-2 to us. Everything is encrypted and identity if verified through knowledge based ID verification which no other online tax platform is using.
Q: What can we expect from taxhub in the future?
A: In the future we will strengthen our platform and make it easier to communicate with our customers We have an mobile app that will complement our website that will be released in January 2017.Activate Social Media:
