Available for taxpayers that select a Refund Transfer and direct deposit disbursement
When taxpayers pay with their refund it's an easy way to get paid. We designed Auto Collect for the handful that don't receive funding. Save time by using TPG to automatically collect your tax preparation fees from these clients.
Here's how it works
Let us do the work for you
Convenient payment options offered
Clients are given the option to conveniently pay your fees with a credit card or bank account
Fees are direct debited
If your client does not respond, TPG will debit your fees from your client's bank account
Payment issued to you
TPG collects our processing fee of 25% of the amount debited and the remainder is deposited into your bank account upon completion of the Auto Collect program2
* Participating EROs have the option to not collect on certain taxpayers and will have the option to make this determination on a case-by-case basis.
