Should another tax preparation method yield a larger tax refund or a smaller tax liability, please share this with us. Many times, it's due to a data entry difference that changes the tax refund or tax liability results.
- Keep in mind when you compare results, a larger tax refund or a smaller tax liability on one site compared to another site does not mean that the data entries are the same. If the entries are different, the calculations will be different.
Share with us the different results you might get so we can help you gain confidence that eFile.com is the right tax platform for you.
Policies, Fee Refunds, and More
For policies related to fees and refunds, read below. eFile.com offers varying levels of tax services, assuring there is an option for each individual tax situation. Find information regarding promo codes, the eFile tax app, and our guarantee to Meet 'n Beat any other lower tax preparation service prices.
Promo Codes: We will honor all valid eFile.com promo codes and promo codes from tax preparation competitors. Please provide a link or screenshot as evidence of a competitor's promo code prior to paying and checking out on eFile.com. If you submit a promo code after you have paid on eFile.com, we can no longer honor this promo code. Instead, we will provide you with a higher discount promo code for another tax return, either current or the next tax season. This is only valid for 90 days after your return was started.
Tax App Error: If you are facing one or more tax app errors which we can re-create and cannot correct for you, we will refund you for the tax preparation fee. You might be required to provide screenshots of the alleged error(s) as further evidence. If you claim one or more tax calculation errors, we maintain the right to review and/or re-create the alleged claim(s) before we approve a tax preparation fee refund. The section below, Result Comparison, explains comparisons of the same tax return between other various tax preparation sites or tools. A tax return that results in a higher tax refund or lower taxes due does not mean that this tax return is processed correctly or that the same tax data was entered on all tax returns. Tax return results that are plus/minus $1.00 do not apply as they might be due to rounding. This is valid for tax returns for the current tax year only.
Result Comparison: If you received a larger refund amount or paid a smaller tax due using another online tax preparation software, you must provide the PDF tax return from the other site so we can compare that with the tax data you entered on eFile.com. Tax return result comparisons are in most cases due to different tax data entered by a taxpayer. Only upon review of the PDF of the return can we consider a tax preparation fee refund. This is only valid for 90 days after your return was started. Higher refunds or lower taxes due is not an indication of a tax return prepared correctly; it could be due to different tax data entered. Tax return results that are plus/minus $1.00 may be due to rounding and will not apply.
Unable To Electronically File (e-file) Return: We cannot provide a refund if you paid for a tax return on our site, but could not e-file the return for any reason (could not get a prior-year AGI from the IRS, the IRS [not eFile.com] rejected your return, etc.). If you can't or don't want to e-file your return, or you are required to paper file it, you can print and mail your tax return from your eFile.com account and mail it to the IRS and/or state tax agency.
Deleted Account: If you prepare one or more tax return(s) and pay for these tax return(s) by voluntarily clicking the payment processing button and subsequently delete this account and tax returns, we can not issue tax preparation fee refunds or refunds for the audit protection product since all associated data has been deleted. The fee you paid is for the preparation of tax returns and e-Filing is included. These completed returns were stored for you to view and download from your My Account section prior to account deletion. These PDF files of completed returns are deleted with the deletion of your eFile.com account. See details on what is and what is not deleted when you delete your eFile.com account.
Price Meet 'n Beat: Only eFile.com offers a Price Meet n' Beat guarantee. If you find a lower tax preparation price online for the exact same tax service, we will not only Meet this Price, but also Beat it! Please provide links or screenshots of the lower price here prior to paying tax preparation fees on eFile.com as proof of the lower price so we can "Meet 'n Beat" that price. Dare to Compare! This is valid for tax returns for the current tax year only.
Fee Refund Methods: Tax preparation fees paid by credit card cannot be partially refunded and might be combined with promo codes for future tax returns. Approved credit card fee refund amounts will be based on the cause of the requested refund and the total charges made by the taxpayer (e.g. if a promo code was applied or not). Fees paid via e-Collect or deduct fee from refund can be partially refunded via direct bank deposit, but only after the federal or state refund was issued via eCollect. We will ask you to verify your bank information. Based on the tax preparation fee refund request (e.g. if you do not own a bank account or request a check in the mail, etc.), we reserve the right to substitute tax preparation fee refunds with a free tax return or other promo codes for future tax returns.
