Some tax clients are often unable to pay up front for tax preparation and other services that may be included when they get their taxes done for both federal and state returns. At the same time, many EROs want streamline their account receivables. TSG partners with industry leading providers to ensure you stay competitive in your market and works with the affiliated bank partners below.
About Bank Products
We all experience Clients who cannot afford to pay up front for tax preparation. The IRS compliant solution for an ERO to offer Clients payment flexibility is via the use of a “bank product”. Commonly known as an “R/T”, ERC” or “ERD” (Refund Transfer, Electronic Refund Check and Electronic Refund Deposit respectively), the taxpayer is relieved of having to pay for tax prep out of pocket. RALs (Refund Anticipation Loans) are no longer obtainable per U.S. federal courts, therefore we do not offer a RAL, however there are other convenient loan products our bank partners provide.
Get Paid Your Tax Prep Automatically
When Clients elect a bank product, your tax prep fees are deducted from the Client’s tax refund. This is done automatically direct deposited directly to the ERO’s bank account. Fee’s vary depending on the bank; however, TSG provides flexible pricing and optional mark ups to ensure pricing works for your tax office model, and your Clients.
