Pay-Per-Return (PPR) guidelines

The Pay-Per-Return (PPR) option requires a Fast Path license for the current tax year. When preparing tax returns on a pay-per-return basis, you authorize payment for printing or converting a tax return for e-filing for each return processed. You can then print or convert for electronic filing that particular return an unlimited number of times, with no additional Pay-Per-Return fee charge.

Common questions

Payment for pay-per-return can be made via credit or debit card.  ProSeries accepts VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express.

For debit card orders, a hold is placed for the amount of the order in the card's bank account for 5 to 7 business days, but the funds aren't withdrawn from the account until the order is processed.

See Increasing the Pay Per Return (PPR) balance, but keep in mind:

  • PPR fees are incurred in addition to the license fee.
  • PPR increases remain in the ProSeries program tax year where added.
  • Once a return has been authorized, the ProSeries program won't ask to authorize the return again.
  • In a network environment, the PPR funds added are available to all workstations on the network.
  • Sales tax on PPR increases where applicable.

If the Social Security number (SSN) on a personal return or the Employer Identification Number (EIN) on a business return has been changed, the program will ask for another authorization for payment. See Avoiding Duplicate Pay-Per-Return (PPR) Charges.

What is the Audit Report?

  • The Audit Report provides detailed transaction information for each year.
  • The transactions in the Audit Report are kept in the program as long as the program isn't uninstalled.
  • Before uninstalling the program, print the Audit Report to have the funds moved to the new computer.
  • To generate an Audit Report, see View/Print the Pay-Per-Return Audit Report Definitions

Pay Per Return account balances are non-refundable, non-transferable and may not be carried forward to another tax year. For more information refer to the ProSeries License Agreement. (Section 6 - Pay-Per-Return Licensing). For additional assistance, contact ProSeries Customer Support.
