This long-established company provides employers and financial institutions with the ability to prepare and file the full range of IRS information returns and annual wage reports documenting payments to recipients, as well as Social Security Administration (SSA) and Affordable Care Act (ACA) returns. It typically serves 1,900-2,000 customers annually, including Fortune 1000 and smaller corporations, colleges, universities, and federal/state/municipal agencies.
Customers can directly distribute completed tax forms to recipients. Alternatively, they can have the company print and mail them to recipients or file them electronically. Among the broad array of features available to customers are the ability to: validate taxpayer identification numbers, flag errors prior to filing returns, quickly and easily correct errors after filing, file combined federal/state returns, and electronically file state wage reports.
Because customers can choose to purchase only the services they need, the company enjoys a significant pricing advantage over competitors that bundle multiple services. A cornerstone of the company’s success has been the immediate visual technical support it provides, enabling customers to avoid penalties and interest charges for failing to meet filing deadlines. In addition to revenue derived from services, the company sells tax forms and related stationery.
With no advertising, growth has been driven primarily by repeat and referral patronage. Because it provides a compliance service —vs. a discretionary service, the business is highly resistant to economic downturns. The buyer will be “inheriting” a preeminent brand that should continue to yield outstanding results with its current offerings. However, a major untapped revenue opportunity lies in adding services customarily provided by CPAs. The seller is receptive to continuing his involvement with the business after the sale and overseeing the development of those services.
This listing is for a service-based business created in July 2020 in the social media niche. The dashboard is built with AWS and provides marketing-related services. The business has well-established systems with workflow management and requires minimal time to maintain.
The business currently has 21 clients. The average customer acquisition cost is ~$490 and the average lifetime value per customer is ~$11,500.

Currently, orders are processed manually on the back-end through a custom-built Monday.com integration. When an order comes in, a contractor is notified and assigned to work on the project. Each order will then be quality assured by another two contractors. The clients will not see this process as the finished product is then added to the client-facing dashboard. The client will also be notified of the completed order. No proprietary tech is used to automate the process, it is all done manually with a team of contractors. The Seller says it would be possible to automate this with tech if an investment was made.
The Seller spends an average of 2 hours per week having calls with clients and responding to occasional emails. All other operational tasks are outsourced to 12 contractors. The Seller says all contractors will be continuing with a new Buyer.
