    1. EFILES - For all non-bank product personal tax returns (electronically filed returns known as EFILEs) as well as for paper filed returns, when the Client provides an EFIN number, 1040TaxBiz will charge the Client a service fee of $25 for personal and small business returns and $99 for corporate tax returns. Charges for Lee’s (1040taxbiz) direct electronically filed or paper filed returns will be $40 for personal and small business returns and $135 for corporate tax returns.

1040TaxBiz 2023-2024 Renewal & Recap of Key Points in Agreement

 The following is a recap of key points in the agreement you have signed with 1040TaxBiz:

  1. I will provide a copy of my e-services EFIN Summary Application letter. The IRS requires a tax office to have an “EFIN” to electronically file tax returns. The IRS assigns an “EFIN” to identify firms that have completed the IRS e-file Application to become an Authorized IRS e-file Provider. Anyone in the tax office can apply for an EFIN at no cost. Once the provider completes the application and passes a suitability check, the IRS will send an acceptance letter, which includes the EFIN, to the Provider. If I do not already have an EFIN, the application process can take 45 days or more.
  2. I understand and acknowledge that I am required to apply for and use only the electronic filing identification number(s) (EFINs) made known to 1040TaxBiz.
  3. I understand and acknowledge that if I am denied by the IRS for the electronic filing identification number(s) (EFINs) this agreement will be terminated.
  4. I will provide a photocopy of my Driver’s License, clearly showing my picture ID, DL#, D.O.B. and Expiration Date. If my driver’s license is set to expire between now and December 31, 2023, I will need an updated copy before the tax season begins. This information is provided to the bank in order to obtain the use of bank products.
  5. I will provide a signed and completed ACH Transfer Form. The account information I provide on this form is for the sole purpose of crediting my share of preparation fees directly into my checking account or debiting revenue share for E-file returns when the customer pays at the time of preparations.
  6. I understand and acknowledge that 1040TaxBiz will begin the season by making weekly debits and credits, typically on Wednesdays, directly to my account based on funded tax clients and I will have access to view the funding statements that reflect my tax clients who were funded by the IRS and the expected deposit amounts. Returned checks and/or payments are subject to a $30.00 non-sufficient fund (NSF) fee.
  7. I understand and acknowledge that if at any time during the tax season I need to change my banking, I will notify 1040TaxBiz immediately and I will provide 1040TaxBiz with a newly completed ACH Transfer Form to update my banking information. No changes to my banking will be made in the absence of the newly completed and signed ACH Transfer Form, which I can request from 1040TaxBiz. Likewise, if my office or shipping address or any other inform changes, I will complete a Change of Information Form.
  8. I will provide 1040TaxBiz with a W9 Form. The information I provide on the W9 will be used for tax purposes. If I have an EIN number, I will provide it on the W9 Form where indicated. If not, I will provide my Social Security Number on the W9 Form where indicated.
  9. I understand I will be required to pass a criminal background check.
  10. I understand and acknowledge that if I fail to operate in an ethical professional manner, 1040TaxBiz can revoke my service rights and no refund will be given.
  11. I understand and acknowledge that 1040TaxBiz will send me a 1099 form in January of 2025 to claim my income during the 2024 year when I am paid at least $600.
  12. I will not operate or use any tax software/service except those provided by 1040TaxBiz.
  13. I understand and acknowledge that 1040TaxBiz will provide guidance on product pricing and tax preparation fees which will reflect local markets. I however will set tax preparation fees for my clients. To qualify for certain marketing incentives and any other promotions or special deals inside this contract, 1040TaxBiz requires a minimum bank product tax preparation fee of $200.00.
  14. I recognize that if I cancel or default on the service agreement, 1040taxbiz will not service my clients as of the date of cancellation or default.
  15. I understand and acknowledge the Bank, Service Bureau, and Technology fees are not part of the revenue sharing as these fees are fixed costs due and owed to third parties.
  16. I understand that the revenue share for an E-file customer will be debited to my account at the time that the IRS accepts a return, and that bank product revenue share will be credited to my account at the time the bank provides 1040TaxBiz funding from the IRS. One debit or credit will be made to my account weekly based on the difference between all E-file and bank product return fees falling in the 7 day revenue share cycle during the main tax season.
  17. As the local owner and operator, I know I need to market my business. I understand that 1040TaxBiz brands and names are trademarked and I will not use them without prior approval.
  18. I understand and acknowledge that under no circumstances can these products or services be transferred or sold once they are purchased from 1040TaxBiz.
  19. I understand and acknowledge that I am solely responsible for the operation of my Tax Preparation business. Utilizing 1040TaxBiz services and marketing programs are not in any way a guarantee of expected performance.
  20. I understand that I am an independently owned and operated tax business and I have contracted with 1040TaxBiz to process tax returns, provide technical support, tax software, and marketing support to start and grow my tax business.

I hereby agree to and acknowledge the terms outlined above, and I would like to renew my agreement for the next year. By signing this renewal, I understand that I am bound by the terms and conditions stated herein for the duration of the renewed agreement period.
