TaxAct Continues to Forge Integrations with Non-Tax Partners to Help Customers Make Informed Decisions that Improve their Financial Future
Cedar Rapids, IA – February 13, 2018 – TaxAct has forged a strategic partnership with Credible.com, a consumer finance marketplace that helps millennials explore their options for refinancing student loans and other debt at lower interest rates, and make smarter decisions about borrowing.
As part of the integration, TaxAct customers who elect to create BluPrint™ financial health assessments can use the Credible.com marketplace to find more information about opportunities to potentially benefit from refinancing student loans at lower interest rates. TaxAct customers who are informed in their BluPrint reports that they can refinance at lower rates, or qualify for personal loans, may now access the Credible.com marketplace to view actual rates from multiple lenders for which they are pre-qualified.
"A customer's tax return isn't just a tax document. It reveals many clues about the customer's complete financial health and wellness, which we can help them evaluate in order to identify opportunities and vulnerabilities—and how to properly address them," said Sanjay Baskaran, President of TaxAct. "As an objective third party that brings lenders and borrowers together, Credible.com can play a valuable role in educating TaxAct's customers about student loan repayment and personal loan opportunities that offer the best terms for improving their individual financial situations."
San Francisco-based Credible (Credible.com) serves as a transparent online marketplace where borrowers can receive competitive and personalized rates from multiple lenders in real time. More than 650,000 consumers have used the Credible.com marketplace to securely obtain and compare rate information for private student loans, student loan refinancing, and personal loans that are often used to consolidate credit card debt at lower interest rates.
"Credible.com has helped save borrowers more than $165 million in interest to date," said Stephen Dash, founder and CEO of Credible.com. "We are pleased to be able to help TaxAct customers evaluate options without impacting their credit and then help them close their loan once they choose a lender."
TaxAct's BluPrint report can also identify financial health opportunities for customers in areas such as retirement savings, life insurance, and high-yield checking. Learn more about the partnership between Credible and TaxAct at credible.com/a/taxact and credible.com/a/taxactpl.
