AccountNow, Inc. Announces Tax Refund Portal

SAN RAMON, Calif., Feb. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AccountNow, Inc. today announced that tax payers nationwide who have their Federal or state tax refund directly deposited into their AccountNow Prepaid Visa® Card, Prepaid MasterCard® or AccountNow Gold Visa® Prepaid Card will automatically be entered into its Tax Refund Sweepstakes where the winner's tax refund could be tripled up to $15,000. Seven $500 First Prizes will also be awarded in the Tax Refund Sweepstakes which runs from January 16 to April 30, 2013. Winners will be posted on AccountNow's Tax Refund Portal. AccountNow is an innovative award-winning prepaid card company, one of the nation's largest.

"The fastest way to file your tax return is online and tax payers who want an early refund recognize that the quickest way to receive a tax refund is to have it directly deposited into an account," said Jim Jones. "Direct deposit into one of our popular prepaid cards is faster and more reliable than mail, plus there are no check cashing fees," he said.

AccountNow's Tax Portal enables consumers to access current tax information, answer related questions and even download tax forms.  They can learn how to get their refund fast by using direct deposit to an AccountNow Card and know that their personal information is safe and secure. Consumers do not need to have an existing AccountNow Card account to use the Tax Portal.   They can sign up for a new AccountNow Card account at the Tax Refund Portal and follow the on-screen prompts to prepare and e-file their return.  Most filers will be able to complete their tax return online and e-file it in 30 minutes or less. And tax payers filing paper income tax returns can have their refund loaded into an AccountNow Card too by simply entering their account and routing numbers on the last page of their return just like taxpayers completing their return online. The instructions are easy to follow.   

In addition to wanting to get the tax refund money the government owes them faster, many people want to keep their tax refund separate from other funds to allocate for paying bills, reducing debt, or booking a vacation. They like the idea of being able to track and monitor how those funds are spent.
