50 years in Taxes, 2 National Franchise Brands Built

50 Years Experience

We Know Taxes

Hewitt began his career working for H&R Block in 1969 as a tax preparer before quickly advancing to assistant manager and regional director. He was the company’s youngest regional director, managing more than 2,000 tax preparers in 250 offices in one of H&R Block’s largest districts.

In the early 1980s, he and his father invented the first tax software on the Apple Computer. But his “eureka moment” was still to come. Later with Jackson Hewitt, “HewTax” software the first tax preparation software was implemented an inspiration to today’s various versions of tax preparation softwares and e-file system.

2 National Brands Built

We Know Franchising

In 1982, Hewitt, D’Angelo and a team of investors founded Jackson Hewitt Tax Service in Virginia Beach, Va. The company used this unique “Hewtax” decision-tree tax interview software program, that John and his dad developed. They sold franchises to entrepreneurs nationwide, growing to over 900 offices in the United States.

Franchisees could prepare taxes quickly and accurately using the software.  Jackson Hewitt provided the support necessary.  Proof was evident by the profitability of the franchisees which lead to further franchise sales.
