Case Study Background:

In 2022, it’s estimated that 19 million taxpayers filed an extension with the IRS for their 2021 returns. And while April 15 is typically what’s termed “Tax Day” in the US, those who successfully filed an extension had until October 17 to file their taxes. This October deadline creates a second volume spike from October 1-17, in the banking and finance industry as customers reach out for help completing their taxes.

    Challenge

    A record number of tax extensions were filed in 2022, creating a surge in contact volume from people needing expert care for the largest personal tax software platform. With a myriad of post-COVID tax changes, many of the questions are very complicated and required a network of Service Partners with extensive knowledge of the tax software.
