Since 2002, SurePrep has been the leader in 1040 tax prep productivity. We are excited to be recognized as one of the top 10 fastest-growing mid-size private companies in Orange County in an article by the Orange County Business Journal (article access requires subscription), published on September 14th, 2020.
This ranking includes mid-size businesses across all industries with annual sales between $10 million and $99.9 million and was determined by two-year revenue growth from June 30th, 2018 to June 30th, 2020, listing SurePrep’s growth at 98.8%. In the last 12 months alone, we’ve hired 211 new employees, with more than half joining the team after COVID-19-related lockdowns took effect in March. (We are still hiring.)
SurePrep specializes in 1040 tax automation technology that helps firms streamline and automate their workflows. We are the only end-to-end solution that removes friction and provides time savings for everyone involved in the 1040 tax preparation process—administrative staff, preparers, reviewers, and taxpayers. We help our clients reduce costs and increase productivity with process improvements like:
- Eliminating the need for preparers to perform data entry
- Shortening review time with high-efficiency tools
- Lowering workload compression with automatic tax document retrieval
- Enabling remote collaboration with cloud-based binders
Our clients include 3 of the Big 4, 5 of the Top 10, over half of the Top 100, and nearly 1,200 small- to mid-sized firms. All told, over 23,000 tax professionals use our solutions at the time of this publication.
We are conscious that our rapid growth runs parallel to an economic crisis, which adds a weight of responsibility to this recognition. We owe a debt of gratitude to our clients, staff, and vendors for their dedication and incredible agility this year.
