How pay-by-refund works

Once the tax return is prepared and a refund is expected, a Refund Transfer can be used to pay for tax preparation.

Step 1: Choose to pay-by-refund

Whether using a tax professional or doing it yourself, select the pay-by-refund option before your tax return is filed. You’ll decide how you want to receive your refund amount too.

Step 2: File the tax return

The tax return will include TPG’s info so the IRS and/or the state will know where to send the tax refund.

Step 3: Receive the refund

Once the refund amount is issued to TPG, all associated tax preparation fees are withheld and paid, and the remaining refund amount is issued to the taxpayer.
