Please Note: This credit card will be used for each e-file that you choose to submit. It will not need to be re-entered on each e-file.

Prepaid E-Filing

To purchase prepaid e-filing, we recommend contacting our professional support line at 319-731-2682.

Available options:

  1. Purchase a professional bundle which includes unlimited e-filing.
  2. Purchase increments of e-filing (available in $1 increments).

After purchasing a bundle that includes the unlimited e-filing or increments of prepaid amounts, please follow the steps listed above (under Pay-Per-Return) through Step 5.

Please Note: The Practice ID entered at Preparer > Master Information > Practice must match the practice ID on the account used to order pre-paid filing.

IMPORTANT: The unlimited e-filing begins after the unlimited e-filing has been paid in full. There will be no refunds given for any individual returns filed prior to purchasing the unlimited e-filing.
