    Refund Transfers Help Tax Professionals Get Paid

    Refund Transfers Empower Tax Professionals

    This post is intended for the tax preparer, regardless of experience, who is interested in learning more about “tax refund bank products,” or “bank products” for short. To understand refund transfers, it’s helpful to understand what happens at your tax office.

    When engaging a new client, tax preparers will typically ask for upfront payment and, in rare cases, a tax preparer may decide to assume a credit risk by preparing the taxes anyway and collecting payment at a later date.

    Simply put, refund transfer is a third option which allows  tax preparers to collect payments from a taxpayer’s refund with the assistance of a trusted financial services provider.Ebook BannerThe Refund Transfer Process

    What does this mean exactly and how do refund transfers work?

    It means that tax preparers can help new clients without worrying about getting paid because the financial services provider is a trusted third party whose primary responsibility is to receive and disburse funds to the appropriate parties.

    These disbursements typically come in the form of a check or direct deposit, and the financial services provider charges a fee for providing this service.
