Taxpayers suffer from a holiday shopping hangover

-->

Holiday stress from overspending?

Make them feel better with a free, tax time cash advance¹

Blame it on one too many, scented pine cones, but it was easy to get caught up in the gift giving spirit. What might have started out a careful shopping list for a few closest loved ones, ended-up, a something-for-everyone, holiday bender of, “Who did I miss?” And even worse than that January 2 headache, is the feeling of an empty wallet and the cold splash of getting ready to pay your taxes.

Right about now, your clients are hurting. In fact, according to a number of sources, it is estimated that the American consumer was to have spent over $935.58² this year. So if starting a conversation with their tax professional, ranks somewhere between having to go back to work and a visit to the doctor’s office, you’ll understand. But there is something you can do to make taxpayers feel better and get them coming through your office doors. Offer a tax time cash advance.

Offering a FastCashADVANCE† through Santa Barbara Tax Products Group (TPG) is not only a great way to attract business, it gets clients the money they need fast, and shows them you care. As Carlos Lopez of Latino Tax Professionals states,

“A FastCashADVANCE shows taxpayers that we go that extra mile for them. Providing this kind of unparalleled customer service is what separates us from other tax offices and keeps our clients returning year after year.”

Moreover, as you may know, new government regulation of the PATH Act is likely to delay returns with earned income and additional child tax credits (EITC/ACTC) up to 6 or more weeks. So why not offer this great service to your clients? You pay only a small fee³ and there’s no fee for your client.¹ Taxpayers can get up to $1,000† and get their money on a cashier’s check or Green Dot pre-paid debit card. Enrollment is easy for you and there is only a single in-office application for your clients. Lastly, when you opt-in on the TPG website, you’ll automatically get a free marketing media kit. You’ll also be able to order other advertising items as well, helping to promote and attract clients to your business.
