You don’t have to be rich or a movie star to find good help to do your taxes, according to Robin Swarn, a tax preparer with Jackson Hewitt.
“We have news for everyday people seeking a tax refund or needing help with tax issues,” she said. ‘’Whatever is going on, we can fix it.’
She says she can often work out a hardship compromise with the IRS on behalf of a client due to hardship.
“A lot of what is owed can be removed, depending on the situation in an individual case,’’ she said.
“What we do differently here at Jackson Hewitt is a Free Accuracy Guarantee, Free 24/7 Tax Return Status Alerts, convenient drop-off service and most importantly – no appointment necessary.
“Just walk into one of our eight locations in Berkley, Oakland or Richmond, and any one of our friendly professional tax specialists can help you.”
Swarn has been doing taxes since 1986. She was introduced to the business by her husband, whose dad had a tax business. With eight offices in three cities, she has helped thousands of repeat customers with their taxes.
For anyone interested in a tax career, Jackson Hewitt offers a three-month, 72-hour Basic Income Tax course. To become a tax preparer, you also have to be registered with the IRS and the California Education Tax Counsel.
