The following page gives a detailed list of the bank products offered, along with the Tax Preparation and other services for which the Taxpayer can be charged a fee. This program has been enhanced to provide several billing options. You can make copies of this page for your office staff for quick reference. For detailed instructions on setting up billing and entering fees into the program, please refer to Chapter 2.
A fee is normally charged for preparing the Tax Return for the Taxpayer. This fee is automatically deducted from the Taxpayer’s refund, when applicable. Be sure your information is entered on page 2 of the Return, and sign and date the return if you are a Paid Preparer. If you are only assisting the Taxpayer with entering the data into the computer and not signing the return as a Paid Preparer, the Taxpayer cannot be charged a Tax Preparation fee.
A fee may be charged when the Taxpayer’s tax return is electronically filed with both the IRS and state taxing agency. Some banks do not allow an electronic filing fee to be charged when a Taxpayer is purchasing a bank product. The Taxpayer must electronically file their return to receive a bank product. Also, electronic filing typically provides a faster refund. If the Taxpayer chooses to do a paper return, it may be several weeks before their refund will be available.
