TaxAct partners with Republic Bank & Trust Company (member FDIC) to allow TaxAct program fees to be deducted from your tax refund.
When you choose to have your TaxAct fees paid from your tax refund in the filing steps, you must accept the Refund Transfer Application and Agreement. Section 5 of that agreement authorizes Republic Bank to debit your account 45 days after your original estimated refund date.
If your refund is deposited within 45 days of the original estimated refund date, no further action is required.
If the tax agency does not deposit your refund, and your tax preparation fees have not been paid in full by April 1 or 66 days after filing, Republic Bank may withdraw funds from your account to pay your TaxAct software fees.
In this case, you will be notified by Republic Bank & Trust Company three weeks before the TaxAct program fee amount is automatically withdrawn. Another reminder letter will come one week before the withdrawal, and the final notification will come three days before the scheduled withdrawal.
If you prefer, you can make the payment manually at any time by visiting republictaxpayer.com.
