Tax Preparation Services in the US
Over the five years to 2019, the Tax Preparation Services industry has posted solid growth as the unemployment rate has fallen, causing more Americans to file tax returns. Additionally, as per capita disposable income has risen, more consumers have had the resources to afford bringing their taxes to tax professionals. Although improving economic conditions are expected to support industry revenue growth over the five years to 2024, some operators' performances will be stunted as online providers threaten traditional brick-and-mortar establishments that are unable to adapt to the changing landscape. Consequently, the industry's expansion is projected to decelerate.
Operators in this industry provide tax return preparation services to individuals but do not offer accounting, bookkeeping, billing or payroll process services. Although the offices of certified public accountants (CPAs) are excluded from this industry, basic knowledge of tax law and filing requirements is required. Online tax return providers (see IBISWorld report OD4549) do not fit within the scope of this industry.
