Under the new model, qualified businesses can resell the tax software they have purchased and generate income without any need for programmers, UltimateTax reports
UltimateTax, a leading professional tax software provider since 2006, is now allowing qualified business owners to resell its tax preparation software. During the 2018 tax season, UltimateTax conducted a test of a new model for their customers to become tax software resellers, or Service Bureaus. A Service Bureau is a business that adds a level of service when supporting the tax software. As with insurance agents that sell coverage to others, tax software resellers will be selling and supporting UltimateTax software.—
Under the new UltimateTax program, software resellers do not need a team of programmers or staff members who update forms and communicate with each level of government. Service Bureau resellers will support clients with errors in their systems, questions about how to use the software, and where items go in a tax return. Many one-person operators add this service to their current operations and can easily support 25 added clients. UltimateTax has come up with a system, training, and support to assist Service Bureaus in the process.
"The software that is being resold is the same software that our UltimateTax clients use now," said UltimateTax founder Mike Steele. "Having the ability to sell the same tax software that they use allows our Service Bureau partners to share the benefits of their expertise in the industry. This makes selling tax software an easy transition to year-round income."
UltimateTax is a leader in the reseller market, having sold its software to more than 9,000 offices since opening its doors in 2006. With the changing tax preparation market, business owners are always looking for ways to increase their revenue. Becoming a tax software reseller does just that. The new UltimateTax resale program creates opportunities for generating income from selling the software, adding value to existing services, supporting the product, per return fees, transmission fees and other revenue shares.
Tax software is an annual purchase. Each tax season, there are changes to the software, and this is especially true for the 2019 season. A Service Bureau needs the ability to adapt quickly to the changes and be able to support their clients. Since Service Bureaus do not have to focus on the programming and software changes, this allows the business owner to focus on sales and support.
