- IRS identity theft assistance — Protection Plus will assist Members who experience problems in filing their tax return due to a suspected identity theft incident by interacting with the IRS on your client's behalf. Protection Plus will assist in completing all required paperwork to be submitted to the IRS and getting their tax return successfully filed. Protection Plus also assists in obtaining an IRS Identity Protection PIN to prevent a future event.
- $2,500 guarantee** — Your client can rest easy knowing that participating tax preparers' services are guaranteed. If a legitimate preparer error is made during the filing of a tax return, the taxpayer will be reimbursed for the consequent taxes, penalties or interest up to $2,500.
