A Day in the Life of a Liberty Tax Zee During our tax season peak times, the successful franchisee may arrive at the office very early, supervise and/or go out on business-to-business marketing visits, work with the tax preparation staff and office staff to be sure there’s adequate staffing and that returns are transmitted promptly, and work with wavers and the marketing team to be sure there’s always a Lady Liberty waving and daily marketing goals are accomplished. The franchisee may or may not actually prepare returns. The successful franchise is checking on operations and may be in the office after the last customer leaves and after the last return is transmitted to the IRS for the day. A typical day after tax season may be a day with family or time on the golf course. Liberty Tax franchisees are required to maintain office hours one day a week in the off season, and hold tax schools during the fall months.
