Jackson Hewitt Launches Internal Review of Allegations Against Franchisee

Jackson Hewitt Tax Service Inc., a leader in the tax preparation industry, today announced it has launched an internal review of allegations made against a franchisee of the company. The review is being led by Fred Goldberg, a partner at the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.

Here is background on the IRS allegations

The government filed lawsuits against several corporations that operate 125
Jackson Hewitt offices. These offices in four states — including Michigan —
are owned by one franchisee.

The Justice Department says they were cheated out of more than $70 million
after franchise managers and employees took kickbacks for filing fraudulent
returns.
