New Prepaid Card Aims To Give Consumers A Quicker Tax Refund

[Saturday, November 3rd, 2018]

If you look forward to tax season every year because you expect to be getting a nice big refund from Uncle Sam—or even a small one—then you might want to sign up for the new TaxSlayer Prepaid Visa card, which will be available next tax season.

In partnership with Green Dot, online tax and finance technology company TaxSlayer is issuing the prepaid card in order to make it faster and easier for folks to get their tax refunds back. They can have their refunds issued directly to the prepaid card, and then continue to use the card as a debit card all year long.

The TaxSlayer Prepaid Visa card is a reloadable prepaid debit card account, offering the convenience and full service of a bank account, without the fees or penalties for overdrafts. Anyone who does not have an option for direct deposit of their tax refund can benefit from using the TaxSlayer Prepaid card, with they can sign up for during the tax filing process in 2019. Last year, TaxSlayer filed 10 million state and federal tax returns and issued 12 billion dollars in taxpayer refunds.

Prepaid accounts come with many perks

More and more folks are opting to use a prepaid account rather than a traditional checking account, which is often laden with fees. There are often monthly usage fees simply for having the account, something that certain prepaid and debit cards waive. Since money is loaded onto the card and then used up, there’s no danger of overdrawing the account and incurring a fee that way, either.

A prepaid debit account works much like a credit card, but does not allow cardholders to go into debt. Therefore, anyone who is wary of the danger of overspending on a credit card can benefit from using a prepaid card instead.

Some prepaid cards even offer perks, such as exclusive savings opportunities and reward points. Plus, getting a tax return on a prepaid debit card, rather than waiting for a paper check in the mail, speeds up the return process and guarantees you’ll be celebrating that refund faster than you would if you did not choose the direct deposit option.
