Can Jackson Hewitt Estimate the Amount of a Tax Refund?

Jackson-Hewitt does have a refund estimator tool available on its website, according to Jackson-Hewitt. Taxpayers can estimate their federal income tax due to be paid or refunded, as well as estimate self-employment tax and estate tax.

To use the calculator provided on the Jackson-Hewitt website, users need to input their filing status, income, itemized deductions (or standard deduction amounts) in order to calculate the tax due. There is also a tax table available, as well as information regarding filing status, dependents, exemptions, short-and long-term loss, business income and taxable income, according to Jackson-Hewitt. As of September 2015, the tax table breaks down the tax rates for tax year 2015.
