PROGRAM TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
1. Participation in the TaxAct Professional Referral Program ("Program") is available only to tax professionals who are current and active TaxAct Professional customers (either purchased tax year 2017 or tax year 2018 software).

For every referred tax professional ("Friend") that makes a first-ever qualifying purchase of an eligible TaxAct Professional product ("Qualifying Software"), the Advocate's professional practice entity ("Advocate's Firm") and Friend (each a potential, "Recipient") will each receive the respective stated corresponding discount or reward ("Reward(s)") set forth in the table in section 2, subject to the Program limits set forth below.

Referral message must be initiated for sending in a manner customary to personal communications between friends and family members. Bulk email distributions, including distribution to persons or email addresses that are strangers or unknown to the referring Advocate, or that would cause the Referral to constitute unsolicited commercial email or SPAM under any applicable law or regulation is expressly prohibited and will result in disqualification of the Referral and may be grounds for exclusion from further participation in the Program.

Rewards shall be limited to the first twenty (20) qualifying referrals made by each Advocate or the first fifty (50) qualifying referrals made by individuals at the same Advocate's Firm, whichever occurs first. The number of referrals made by individual Advocates and individuals at the same Advocate's Firms for purposes of the foregoing limits shall be determined by TaxAct in its sole discretion.
4. Reward notification and delivery. Friend will receive software discount immediately upon purchase. To purchase at the Referral Program price, Friend must place order with the TaxAct Professional Sales team by calling 319-536-3571. Once the Friend receives software, the Friend must remain an active customer of TaxAct with respect to the Qualifying Software for at least 30 days to become a verified customer. After the 30 day verification period, Advocate's Firm becomes eligible to receive the applicable Reward. Advocate's Firm must allow up to 4 weeks after verification period to receive Amazon Gift Card. Gift Card will be sent by email to email address provided by the Friend of the referring Advocate. All Rewards earned by Advocate under this Program shall be directed to the Advocate's Firm associated with Advocate's TaxAct Professional program account if such Advocate's Firm can reasonably be determined by TaxAct. No Rewards shall be distributed directly to individual Advocates.
