Class Action Investigation for Wage Violations by Jackson Hewitt

Beginning in the 2013 tax season (approximately January 2014 through April 2014) and continuing to the present, Jackson Hewitt has run promotions offering $50-100 gift cards for qualifying customers who hired Jackson Hewitt to complete their tax returns. We are investigating allegations that Jackson Hewitt deducted the value of these gift cards from individual tax preparers’ revenues, lowering their earned commissions. In doing so, Jackson Hewitt may be violating the tax preparers’ commission contract or Washington’s wage laws.

If you worked as a tax preparer during anytime from January 2013 to the present, we would like to hear about your experience. You may be entitled to recover lost compensation from Jackson Hewitt. Please email attorney Jesse Wing at jessew@mhb.com, or call him at (206) 622-1604.
