Federal Direct wants to put your tax office on the same level playing field with the national franchises. As a Federal Direct partner, there are 4 different tax refund options that you can offer to your clients:
• Check printed at your office for pickup
• Direct Deposited into their Checking or Savings account
• Deposited onto a prepaid Visa debit card that you provide them
• Dispersed as Cash through a WalMart financial service center
These tax refund options are the gold standard in the tax preparation industry and are what tax filers have become accustomed to. Federal Direct also allows for you to collect your preparation fees directly from your clients’ tax refunds. If you are not familiar on how “bank products” work in regards to tax preparation, be sure to talk to one of our account reps to get more details on how you can guarantee you get paid, make sure that no prep fees go uncollected, and get general information for tax preparation business plans.
