20-year old Entrepreneur Opens Tax Preparation Franchise Smart Tax, Step-Above Tax Preparation Franchise in Houston. | 20-year old Entrepreneur Opens Tax Preparation Franchise Smart Tax, Step-Above Tax Preparation Franchise in Houston. Smart Tax Franchise Continues Expanding by Partnering with Local Driven Entrepreneurs – Projects 100 Locations By 2012.

BROOKLYN, NY – While many businesses are slowing down due to the rocky economic climate, Smart Tax franchise, a newly launched 10-unit tax preparation franchise concept, is just starting to speed up.  Smart Tax is a step above the competition by offering quicker returns, better services and is expanding rapidly, now opening its newest location in Houston at 13423 Woodforest Blvd.

“I have always been interested in the tax field, as I have been doing my own taxes for the past two years.  When I learned about Smart Tax, I knew it was an opportunity that I couldn’t pass-up,” said Megan Savitsky, 20-year old, first-time business owner and Smart Tax franchisee of the Houston location.

Megan was initially introduced to Smart Tax by her father, Richard, whose long-time friend is a multi-unit franchisee of Smart Tax. Megan had heard so many great things about the concept of Smart Tax and became very interested in the idea. Megan, who is just 20-years old and a full-time nursing student at San Jacinto College, has the future goal of developing Smart Tax franchises throughout the Houston region and eventually throughout all of Texas.

“I am only 20 years old and I get to be my own boss and expand a fresh new concept to my community here in Houston,” said Savitsky, who was inspired by Nick Rizzi’s entrepreneur story and decided to jump on board as another young, passionate member of the Smart Tax team.

CEO and Founder Nick Rizzi grew Smart Tax into four small successful locations, after launching his first location as a 29-year old entrepreneur using his life savings and a credit card.  Rizzi created his concept a step above the competition by offering quicker returns and better services.

Despite the economic climate and people cutting back on spending, tax returns is one appointment people can look forward to every year—and people can get their taxes processed at Smart Tax in as quickly as an hour for a very low cost.

“I wanted to create a system one-step ahead of competition and provide a service that our customers valued in each community we enter,” said Rizzi, noting he plans to have 100 locations by January 1, 2012. “As a young, driven entrepreneur, Megan Savitsky is a great addition to the Smart Tax team, one who will serve as a strong asset in growing our brand throughout the Houston region.”

ABOUT SMART TAX                                                   
Smart Tax was founded in 2005 by CEO Nick Rizzi, who noticed a void in tax service options, strong customer service, and speed of return in an under-saturated tax preparation segment. After growing Smart Tax to four successful operating locations, Rizzi decided to begin franchising the concept – thus offering the same services in communities nationwide. Built on knowledge, experience, training and years of hard work in financial planning, taxes, insurance, and more, the Smart Tax franchise will launch on January 3, 2010 with 10 locations. Smart Tax is a tax preparation service offering a quick and hassle-free way for its clients to file their taxes each and every year. With access to up-to-date information, technologies, and a proprietary system, Smart Tax projects 100 locations open by January 1, 2012.
