I saw a news release this morning that I want to share with you. The Tax.com domain name has been listed for sale, and Domain Holdings was selected as the exclusive broker for this domain name. The press release doesn’t have the price listed, but based on the comps listed, the asking price is most likely in the high six or low seven figure range.
Tax.com is currently owned by a Falls Church, Virginia company called Tax Analysts. The domain name is used as a forwarder to the company’s main website, TaxAnalysts.com. I am not sure if they have been forwarding it for a while or if they started forwarding it in anticipation of a sale. There are 20 results in Google for the website/domain name.
The company also owns Tax.org, although that domain name is not included in this listing.
Tax season is pretty much over for most personal filers, but buying Tax.com now means a company would have several months to build out a website in order to achieve solid rankings for the next tax time.
If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, the broker’s contact information is in the press release below. Congratulations to Domain Holdings on getting this listing. It looks like a number of solid domain names are going on the market right now, and it seems like all the major brokers are getting great names to represent.
Domain Holdings, a leading premium domain name broker and monetization company, announced that it has been retained to exclusively broker the domain Tax.com, the world’s most valuable tax domain.
In 2012, there were over 250 Million filed tax returns in North America alone, and billions of dollars spent in advertising and accounting fees. Highly memorable and marketable, the domain Tax.com is one of the most valuable properties put on the market in recent years.
Almost 20 years old, the domain Tax.com is one of the only remaining super premium domains not owned by big brands and ready to be the premium destination for any company operating or looking to enter the tax industry.
“Owning Tax.com automatically provides the instant brand recognition many companies pay tens of millions to achieve,” said John Ferber, Chairman of Domain Holdings. “Some may even call this the perfect domain name.”
Tax.com is so much more than a domain name. It’s an unforgettable brand for an industry which continues to move online and almost every consumer or business has to engage in.
Available exclusively through Domain Holdings, interested parties in Tax.com or other premium generic domains are encouraged to contact Mark Thomas, Senior Domain Advisor, at +1.561.303.1227 or email sales(at)domainholdings(dot)com

I’d be very leery of buying into this domain! What with the Oh-So-Welcome strong and steady leadership of our President and the powerful bi-partisanship of the current Congress, we may just see the _end_ of all taxes very soon.
