Refund Options

The following Refund Options are available when you file with Black Star Tax.

Black Star Tax is proud to offer our clients the option to pay for their tax preparation with their refund. This service is available to you when you elect to use bank products provided by our partner Refundo.

Here are the various ways you can receive your refund:

Paper Check

A check with your refund can be printed by Black Star Tax to be picked up by you, or secure mailed to you. This refund option can take up to 6 weeks after IRS acceptance for your check to be sent.

Direct Deposit

Your tax return can be deposited right into a bank account or prepaid card of choice within 21 days.

Netspend® Prepaid Visa®***

Your refund(s) will be loaded on a Netspend® Prepaid Visa® usually within 21 days after your return is accepted. Additional fees may apply.

Netspend Visa Prepaid Cards must be issued and funded by a Refund Transfer with at least $20 between January 1, 2020 – December 31, 2020 (the “promotional period”) to qualify for this offer from Refundo. Netspend is not affiliated in any way with this offer and does not endorse or sponsor this offer.

Refund Transfer

Black Star Tax gives clients the option to pay for their tax prep fees with their refund check. This process is made possible with a Refund Transfer, in which the Taxpayer’s refund is first sent to our bank partner, who then subtracts the filing fee. The bank would then send the remaining balance to the taxpayer as a check or direct deposit. Refund transfers also allow taxpayers to opt in for a NOW ADVANCE loan.

Refund Advance

Black Star Tax offers 0% interest down refund advances through our bank partner Refundo. To qualify for a refund advance, you must select a refund transfer option.
