With Tax Increases Looming on the Horizon, TaxConnections Offers Consumers What They Want and Need: A Tax Break

LA JOLLA, Calif., Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With January 1, 2013 nearing, consumers want a tax break and it looks like TaxConnections is going to be the one they want! TaxConnections is a two-year-old consumer Internet company founded by Kat Jennings, CEO and is seeking Series A Funding. The company's market segment is more than one billion people who go online each year for tax help, and tax professionals who want to establish a strong and effective tax brand identity. TaxConnections brings the world together in the first interactive Worldwide Directory of Tax Professionals. It is certain to be a big hit with the tax increases on their way around the world!

"Ask anyone how they find a tax professional today and they all give you the very same answer, the old-fashioned referral," states Jennings. "We are creating a shift in the market in how people find a tax professional, interface with them, and find answers to tax questions … at hyper speed!

"We are also providing tax professionals a visible platform to market their tax services and tax brand identities. Tax professionals from every market segment are encouraged to become members including tax professionals in corporations, law firms, public accounting firms, government tax agencies, and independent tax consultants, enrolled agents and academia to come together to provide a world of tax help to consumers. The world has changed and people now want a better way to find a tax professional. TaxConnections creates seamless connections between consumers and tax professionals worldwide."

Jennings stated, "Someone asked me why would tax professionals give tax answers for free? I tell them it is one thing to answer a tax question yet quite another to do your tax return. Asking a tax professional how they would approach a tax problem on our Ask Tax Questions Forum gives you an opportunity to interact with a tax professional before you hire one.

"One of the features of Ask Tax Questions is that we never post consumers' names - we want our visitors to have a sense have privacy. The site only posts the names of the tax professional members who answer tax questions." Tax Professionals are encouraged to request a complimentary membership on the Tax Pro Sign Up Page during Beta.

Anyone can Sign Up for a Free Consumer Membership at www.taxconnections.com, browse the site freely, and interact with tax professionals from more than 45 countries around the world. This is certainly the tax break consumers will appreciate with tax increases on the way!

Angels and VC Investors interested may contact CEO Kat Jennings at 858-999-0053 X100.
