1. What is the Refer-a-Friend program?

With the TaxAct Refer-a-Friend Program, you can earn an Amazon gift card* for every new-to-TaxAct friend referral who files a paid federal return. Your friends save too – they get a 20% discount off a paid federal product.

*Value of the gift card is dependent on the offer at the time you make the referral

2. How does the Refer-a-Friend program work?

  • First, visit the share page
  • Enter in your email address so we know where to send your rewards. Then, send a referral email, or post a referral on Facebook or Facebook Messenger. Once you share, you are assigned a share link, which allows us to track all of your referrals and ensure you received your rewards. If an eligible friend clicks on your link and utilizes your discount code, you'll earn your reward.
3. How many people can I refer?

We’ll reward you for up to 20 friend referrals per tax season.

4. Who is eligible to participate in the Refer-a-Friend program?

Everyone! In order to earn a reward though, your friend (referral) must be a NEW customer (meaning they did not file with TaxAct last year).

5. How will my friend know that I am referring them?

The email you send to your friends comes from your email address. In the email, there are detailed instructions telling your friend how to join the program and earn their reward.

6. Once I earn a referral, when will I receive my reward?

It can take up to 30 days for you to receive your reward after your friend completes their paid return utilizing the coupon code you shared.

7. How do I know when I've earned a reward?

Once your eligible friend has completed their paid return, we'll send you an email with your Amazon.com Gift Card.

8. I accidentally deleted my reward email. Can it be resent?

Yes, of course. Just Contact Us, and we will re-send your reward to you via email. Make sure to supply us with the email address you used when you joined the Refer-a-Friend program.

9. What if I referred my friend, he or she made a purchase, but I never got a reward?

No problem – please Contact Us with the email address you used to register for the program. In this email, please send us the email address of your friend, and we’ll look at his or her referral in our system to see if they qualify.

10. How do I unsubscribe from your email list?

Each email we send should contain an unsubscribe link, or you can unsubscribe by contacting us and include the email address you would like unsubscribed.

Note: The only reason you would receive email from us if you haven't registered is because someone you know thought you might like this opportunity. We do not sell email addresses and we do not send spam.

11. Are there any special restrictions or rules for the Refer-a-Friend program?

This program has a simple set of rules to ensure that users are referring their friends and are not spamming large lists or referring themselves. The rules are:

  1. Users may earn one (1) reward for each valid referral. Limit 20 referrals per season.
  2. Users may not participate in a referral program where doing so would be prohibited by any applicable law or regulations.
  3. Users may not use spam to obtain referrals. Users may not acquire referrals through unsolicited email to persons unknown to them, or through use net or message board postings, where the postings are unrelated to the topic of discussion or otherwise violate the terms of the site.
  4. We do not guarantee delivery time on any rewards earned, nor does it guarantee receipt of any rewards.
See the terms and conditions for a complete list of rules.
