A better way to get paid. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3
In 2014, almost 80 percent1 of federal returns resulted in a refund. Pay-by-Refund provides a better way to service these clients.
ZERO OUT OF POCKET
Your refund clients can pay nothing out-of-pocket to get their taxes prepared, no bank account required.
Reduce time spent invoicing and collecting receivables since your fees are paid directly out of your client’s refund.
MAKE MORE MONEY
Earn $10 for each funded Pay-by-Refund transaction2. And, for every IRS refund added onto a new American Express Prepaid Card set up through Lacerte or ProSeries, you can earn an additional $153.
