Get Great Marketing Returns This Tax Season

When most people think of tax season, April comes to mind. But when it comes to marketing to those preparing returns, the season starts months in advance. We can provide audiences for everyone impacted: the enormous and profitable audience of tax-filing consumers and those in accounting and the tax return preparation industry. We can help with every aspect, from hiring decisions to marketing tax preparation software.

Fast Facts

  • People who owe taxes favor online tax preparation and filing. In 2020, over
    90 percent of Americans filed taxes online, growth on track to increase 10 percent
    over the previous year1.
  • In 2020 most Americans received a tax refund in excess of $2,5002. Unlike previous
    years, Americans shared that most planned to save or spend refunds on everyday
    expenses3, reflecting altered habits likely due to the pandemic economy.
  • Singular, large purchases such as a home improvement or vacation still account for
    9-10 percent of refund spending4. This smaller, yet still significant number suggests brands must work harder to identify these people.
