Founder and CEO Liberty Tax Service

Liberty Tax Service is the brainchild of John Hewitt, the savvy 47-year veteran of the tax industry. Hewitt is renowned for his business and financial success and franchising leadership. Hewitt knows the tax preparation business, inside and out. He began his career at H&R Block.

He went on to build Jackson Hewitt from the ground up, then he sold it for hundreds of millions. Hewitt developed state-of-the-art tax preparation software still in use today. He created Liberty Tax Service with the goal of making it “the No. 1 tax preparation business in the universe.” This journey began with the first Liberty Tax Canada in 1997.

Liberty now operates more than 4,400 locations in Canada and the United States. John Hewitt has a big vision.
