Liberty Tax Service Launches ACA Website in Preparation for the Upcoming Mandate

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2013) - Liberty Tax Service, a subsidiary of JTH Holding, Inc. (NASDAQ: TAX), announced today that it has launched its latest addition to the company's line of resources associated with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Liberty Tax created the website, www.healthcaretaxinfo.com, which offers FAQs, a subsidy calculator, and scenarios for individual circumstances, to help inform the public about the ACA.

The subsidy calculator is available to help individuals estimate any possible tax subsidy that their income level may entitle them to receive. Additionally, the website includes a glossary that defines the new, but sometimes confusing, terminology the ACA has created. Even business owners can learn what is expected of them as a result of the ACA by visiting the website.

Liberty Tax Service recognizes the tremendous impact the ACA will have on millions of taxpayers. Free seminars discussing the ACA's impact on individuals are open to the public across the country at various Liberty Tax locations. Free, informative pamphlets are also available to business owners and individuals who want to learn more about the ACA and its effects. For answers to questions or concerns regarding the ACA, individuals may email ACA@LibTax.com.

"Informing the public about the ACA implementation is our number one priority before the 2014 tax season arrives. Some of those directly impacted by this law may have never filed a tax return before, but will need to do so in order to receive applicable premium subsidies and other tax benefits. Liberty Tax is spreading the word," states Chuck Lovelace, the Vice President of Affordable Care for Liberty Tax Service.

To find a local Liberty Tax Service office, call 1-866-871-1040 or visit www.LibertyTax.com for more information.
