Liberty Tax Service Increases U.S. Customers Served by 6.3% Through April 18th

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/02/14 -- JTH Holding, Inc. (NASDAQ: TAX), parent company of Liberty Tax Service, announced today that through April 18, the Company and its franchisees served approximately 6.3% more U.S. customers than it did during the same period in the 2013 tax season. Liberty Tax Service offices prepared 1.82 million U.S. tax returns this tax season, an increase of 4.5% versus the prior year. The Company also processed 191,000 returns online, an increase of 26.5% versus the same period in the 2013 tax season.

"The 2014 tax season was a successful one for Liberty despite the fact that, as previously announced, the Company was unable to sell franchises during a portion of the second quarter of fiscal 2014 because we were completing a restatement process. Our franchisees worked incredibly hard to bring customers in early and are already making plans for next season," said John Hewitt, CEO. "We anticipate a normal upcoming sales season and believe that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act next year represents an exciting opportunity for us and we are looking forward to next year."
