SAN DIEGO, Dec. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson Fistel, LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of Liberty Tax, Inc. ("Liberty Tax") (NASDAQ: TAX) shareholders. Liberty Tax provides tax preparation services and solutions in the United States and Canada.
On September 6, 2017, Liberty Tax announced that its founder and Chief Executive Officer John T. Hewitt had been terminated. Then, on November 7, 2017, the Company announced the resignation of Kathleen Donovan, its Chief Financial Officer.
On December 11, 2017, Liberty Tax reported that KPMG LLP resigned as its independent registered public accounting firm and that Liberty Tax will delay the filing of its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended October 31, 2017.
