HOW IT WORKS
The RefundTRANSFER makes it easy to pay for tax preparation
Once the tax return is prepared and a refund is expected, a Refund Transfer can be used to pay for tax preparation.
Step 1: Select the RefundTRANSFER
Whether using a tax professional or doing it yourself, select the Refund Transfer payment option before your tax return is filed. You'll decide how you want to receive your refund amount too.
Step 2: File the tax return
The tax return will include Stephens Bros Tax Service info so the IRS and/or the state will know where to send the refund amount.
Step 3: Receive the refund
Once the refund amount is issued to Stephens Bros Tax Service, all associated tax preparation fees are withheld and paid, and the remaining refund amount is issued to the taxpayer*
