Year-End Tax Planner Service Helps Hardworking Americans Estimate Their Tax Refund, Prepare for 2016 Tax Season

JERSEY CITY, NJ--(Marketwired - Nov 18, 2015) - In the midst of holiday shopping with consumers eager to know the size of their tax refund, Jackson Hewitt Tax Service® is starting the tax season today. They are offering a new Year-End Tax Planner service that will start the tax preparation process and estimate 2015 taxes and refunds. For a limited time, clients may visit select locations nationwide to meet with a tax professional, who will use clients' IDs and latest paycheck stubs to estimate their maximum tax refund.

"Jackson Hewitt is committed to helping our clients get a financial head start in 2016 by estimating their tax refund with our new Year-End Tax Planner service," said Jackson Hewitt CEO David Prokupek. "It's easy. By bringing in a photo ID and their latest paycheck stub, clients can get their refund estimate just in time for the holiday season."

Jackson Hewitt can also help clients gain access to health care coverage for 2016 through partnerships with marketplace brokers DirectHealth® and GetInsured. Clients who purchase insurance through the marketplace may be eligible for the premium tax credit, which pays some or the entire health insurance premium. It's critical to enroll by December 15 to ensure coverage starting January 1, as tax penalties for being uninsured in 2016 will double. To find out more visit
