Business Segments Description



Wealth Management Business
HD Vest was founded to help tax and accounting professionals integrate financial services into their practices. Unlike traditional independent broker-dealers and/or investment advisers whose client relationships are limited to providing investment advice, most HD Vest advisors have long-standing tax advisory relationships that anchor their wealth management businesses. We believe that tax and accounting professionals, with their existing client relationships and in-depth knowledge of their clients’ financial situations, have a competitive advantage and are better positioned than competitors to provide tailored financial solutions that enable clients to meet their goals. HD Vest primarily recruits independent tax professionals with established tax practices and offers specialized training and support, which allows them to join the HD Vest platform as independent financial advisors. HD Vest has designed a learning management system for its advisors, branded VestU™, with curriculum that introduces advisors to the investment business and helps them build their practices. The comprehensive training curriculum is administered through numerous outlets, including an annual three-day national sales conference, approximately 600 specialized local training events held annually, and on-demand learning paths.

HD Vest's business model provides an open-architecture investment platform and technology tools to help financial advisors identify investment opportunities for their clients, while the long-standing tax advisory relationships provide a large client base of possible investment clients. This results in an experienced and stable network of financial advisors, who have multiple revenue-generating options to diversify their earnings sources, and have access to HD Vest's innovative Mentor program and Chapter meetings. HD Vest also has a highly experienced home office team that is focused on solutions tailored to the advisor's practice. The home office team provides marketing, practice management, insurance and annuity, wealth management, compliance, succession planning, and other support to our advisors.

Tax Preparation Business
TaxAct, a top-three provider of digital tax preparation solutions, based upon the number of e-files made in 2017, has leveraged its strong brand, comprehensive suite of tax preparation solutions, and proven online lead generation capabilities to enable the filing of more than 64 million federal consumer tax returns in the U.S. and Canada since 2000. TaxAct operates as the value player in its market, with a mission to empower people to navigate the complexities of tax preparation with ease and accuracy at a fair price.

TaxAct's offerings come with a price lock guarantee, whereby the price at the start of the tax return filing process is the price when the return is filed, rather than pricing the offering at the time that the tax return is filed. We believe this price lock guarantee ensures price transparency and differentiates TaxAct from its competitors. TaxAct also provides an accuracy guarantee, where, if an error in our software results in a smaller refund or larger tax liability than the customer would receive using the same data with another tax preparation product, we will pay to the customer the difference in the refund or liability (up to $100,000) and refund the applicable software fees the customer paid us. In addition to these core offerings, TaxAct offers ancillary services such as refund payment transfer, audit defense, stored value cards, and retirement investment accounts through HD Vest, and a marketplace for customers to take advantage of personalized tax and financial savings opportunities through third party product providers. TaxAct has an established reputation that we believe is attractive to customers.

We had three offerings for consumers for tax year 2016, which is the basis for TaxAct's 2017 operating results:

A "free" federal and state edition that handled simple returns;

A "plus" offering that contained all of the basic offering features in addition to tools to maximize credits and deductions, and enhanced reporting; and

A "premium" offering that contained all of the plus offering features in addition to tools for self-employed individuals to maximize credits and deductions.
For our offerings, state returns can be filed for free for free simple filers, or through the separately-sold state edition. We also had an offering for small business owners.

TaxAct’s professional tax preparer software allows professional tax preparers to prepare and file individual and business returns for their clients. TaxAct offers flexible pricing and packaging options that help tax professionals save money by paying only for what they need. In addition, the professional tax preparer software includes valuable features that tax professionals count on to maximize their efficiency and productivity, including the option of entering data directly into tax forms, utilizing the question-and-answer interview method to enter data, or easily toggling between the two data entry methods.
