What is a 1st Refund Transfer fee?

When taxpayers file both Federal and state tax returns, and use the Refund Transfer to pay for tax preparation, a fee is charged to process each tax refund that is received by Santa Barbara Tax Products Group.


The 1st Refund Transfer fee is charged for the first tax refund received. That refund may be a state refund or Federal refund. A 2nd Refund Transfer fee is charged for the second refund received, and so on. 


Refund Transfers are deposit products using Green Dot Bank, Member FDIC, that enable certain deductions from the account to be processed. Refund Transfers are not loans. Tax refund and e-filing are required in order to receive Refund Transfer. Fees apply. Terms and conditions are subject to change without notice. Ask your preparer about other IRS e-file options, some of which are provided at no additional cost.
