Jackson Hewitt denies allegations, plans to cooperate with investigation

Jackson Hewitt denied allegations made by the company’s former vice president of financial planning and analysis, who claimed the firm lied on an application for an award under the New Jersey Economic Development Authority’s Grow NJ program.

“Jackson Hewitt believes it provided an accurate and comprehensive application to the EDA and is in compliance with all applicable provisions of the Grow NJ and Economic Redevelopment and Growth programs,” the firm said through a spokesperson in a statement provided by Michelle Starr.

Gulsen Kama told the EDA Task Force convened by Gov. Phil Murphy that the group said falsely told the authority it was looking to move its Parsippany headquarters out of state. She said the firm’s then-CEO David Prokupek told her the company was only considering in-state locations for its relocation.

The company said it plans to cooperate with the task force’s investigation.

“Jackson Hewitt values its relationship with the state of New Jersey and intends to cooperate with the Task Force, as we would with any government inquiry,” the spokesperson said.
