REFUND STATUS

What is EPS Tax?

 

EPS Tax is a refund transfer product that allows you to pay your tax preparer their preparation fees with your tax refund.  When the IRS or state funds your return, EPS sends the preparation fees to your preparer, deducts any other agreed upon fees, and distributes the remainder to you in the method you selected during tax prep.
