PARSIPPANY, N.J., June 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Jackson Hewitt Tax Service Inc.
("Jackson Hewitt"), the nation's second largest tax preparation firm, today
announced that it has entered into an agreement with Matrix Learning Inc. (dba
ExamMatrix), which will make the ExamMatrix Registered Tax Return Preparer
("RTRP") Exam Review course available to the more than 25,000 Jackson Hewitt
Tax Service® tax professionals nationwide.
The RTRP Exam is an Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") mandated exam that tax
professionals are required to pass by December 31, 2013, unless they are
already a Certified Public Accountant, IRS Enrolled Agent or attorney.
"At Jackson Hewitt, our tax preparers are the cornerstone of our business, and
the tax training programs and competency testing we provide these valued
employees ensures the delivery of quality, accurate tax preparation service to
our clients," said Philip H. Sanford, president and chief executive officer of
Jackson Hewitt Tax Service Inc. "As our tax preparers get ready to test under
the new IRS certification requirements, we are pleased to expand our
relationship with ExamMatrix to add their Registered Tax Return Preparer Exam
Review course to our existing training curriculum. ExamMatrix has provided our
system with their IRS Enrolled Agent training course for the past six years, a
course that has been well received by our tax preparers who have trained and
tested for this certification."
"We are very pleased to have Jackson Hewitt choose us to fulfill this critical
RTRP certification training need," said Sean Mullen, chief executive officer
of ExamMatrix. "ExamMatrix and Jackson Hewitt have had an excellent
partnership, and this agreement demonstrates Jackson Hewitt's ongoing
commitment to, and high standards for, the training and continuing education
of all of its tax professionals."
"After studying various RTRP Exam Review options, we chose the ExamMatrix RTRP
Exam Review for our tax professionals," said Barbara Jordan, chief learning
officer of Jackson Hewitt Tax Service Inc. "The ExamMatrix course not only
does a great job of teaching students the tax content tested on the RTRP Exam,
but it also is designed in a manner that makes the student a better test
taker. This unique feature is important for tax professionals who may have
years of tax preparation experience, but also may be years removed from having
taken their last standardized certification exam. We look forward to
integrating the ExamMatrix course into our overall extensive tax preparer
