Keeper Tax, a tax filing software platform for gig workers, creators and freelancers, has closed its Series A round on $13m.
Contributions to the round came from e.ventures, Matrix Partners, Foundation Capital, Lattice CEO and co-founder Jack Altman, Digits CEO Jeff Seibert and Segment president and co-founder Ilya Volodarsky.
The capital injection will help the RegTech to build out a complete tax platform, which offers full service tax advice, expense and filling support. Additionally, the funds will help the company grow its team, deepen its AI capabilities and grow its user base.
San Francisco-based Keeper Tax empowers economy workers to identify and maximise tax deductions and write-offs to help plan out finances. Its platform automatically connects to a user’s financial accounts to monitor purchases and identify write-offs through the use of AI and machine learning.
Keeper Tax founder and CEO Paul Koulick said, “With more people taking on gig, creator, and freelance roles as their sole source of income, and for those taking on a side gig or monetizing a personal passion, we felt it was important that they have access to the same tax advice and write-offs that those that could afford accountants did.
“Our Series A, along with the expertise from our new board members and investors, will help us achieve our goal of expansion into a complete tax service for the millions of people who have come to rely on this type of income and will continue to do so in the future.”
