Liberty Tax Service

Liberty Tax Service is your local Income 
Tax Preparation service, providing local residents with quality tax preparation to ensure they receive every deduction,  credit, and tax advantage to which they are entitled.

Welcome to Liberty Tax Service, located in beautiful downtown Newburyport on the water front, at 5 Water Street, Suite 5C  on the second floor. Locally owned and operated by Karen Goddard  & Travis Souther, we offer the most accurate and guaranteed tax returns. Our team's goal is to also make taxes fun by offering a friendly, inviting atmosphere and tax preparers who care. "We know taxes can be challenging and stressful," Souther added. "So we want to provide customers the best experience possible." 

When visiting our location, customers can expect complimentary refreshments and snacks, as well as comfortable waiting areas and a play space for kids. Beyond providing premier customer service, if the office makes an error in the preparation of the customer's return, which results in a cost of interest or penalty, the office will reimburse the associated interest and penalty initially assessed. We are currently open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

While this originally was meant to be a networking article, becoming more interesting is something that can benefit every area of your life, from striking up a random conversation with strangers to trying out for Dos Equis next Most Interesting Man in the World.

Interesting Is in the Eyes of the Audience 
First, my interesting may not be your interesting. There's no special pill to take or drink to consume to become more interesting because it's not a universal application. But you can become more interesting to a particular audience in these ways:

Do Your Research
Establish who it is you want to become more interesting to and do your research. This could be an individual, like wanting to meet and talk to a particular head of industry as a chamber gala event or it could be a group of people you want to impress, like marketing to Millennials. Whether a person or group, use social media and the Internet to do research on their interests, concerns, things they've published or curated, and other personal information. But not too personal. If we're talking about a person and not a demographic, stop just short of bringing up personal things you know about them and their family thanks to the fact that they don't know how to use security features on Facebook.
