At TaxSlayer, we help taxpayers in two ways. First, we make e-filing tax returns easy and stress free. Second, we get you your money faster. We’re offering a tax refund advance with no upfront out-of-pocket fees or interest.
What does that mean for you? If you’re eligible, you could get up to $1000 in as little as 48 hours.1 Can you think of a better way to start 2019?
Here’s what else you need to know about refundNOW:
- It’s a tax refund advance.
TaxSlayer’s refundNOW is a tax refund advance and a loan, but with no interest and no upfront fees.2
With refundNOW, you can get a portion of the tax refund that’s coming to you. But instead of one lump sum of money later, you’ll get either $500 or $1000—in as little as 48 hours1 following IRS acceptance of your tax return.
- It’s different from our competitors’ tax refund advance.
refundNOW isn’t your typical tax refund advance. You never have to schedule an appointment or meet with a tax preparer face to face. You can do it all online. That means you can apply for the loan and get your money, all from the comfort of home.
How you receive your money is up to you. You can choose direct deposit or an American Express Serve® Prepaid Card.
- It’s a solution for customers whose tax refunds might be delayed.
As mentioned before, no one likes to wait for a refund. According to the IRS, anyone who claims earned income tax credit (EITC) or the additional child tax credit (ACTC) will probably be delayed. The PATH Act says these taxpayers can’t be issued a refund before mid-February.
refundNOW is for eligible taxpayers who can’t afford to wait. Whether it’s for bills, medical expenses, an emergency fund, or a fun splurge, many taxpayers are choosing not to wait.
refundNOW is just another way TaxSlayer can relieve some of the stress associated with tax season.
What will you do with your tax refund?
TaxSlayer. Your refund is waiting.
