This term and condition is limited to e-file users only. This term and condition does not apply to payroll clients or clients who have engaged TaxMe to prepare their returns. While TaxMe works diligently to ensure the accuracy of the calculations on every form prepared using its web-based platform, TaxMe is not preparing your returns, nor is TaxMe reviewing the returns from a substantive perspective (although certain non-substantive errors falling under a Mechanical Assistance Exception discussed below may be caught and corrected). You are responsible for preparing, reviewing and confirming all information. TaxMe charges its fee to e-file your return with the IRS, not to prepare or review it. TaxMe transmits your data to the IRS as an “Authorized IRS e-file Provider”. The IRS classifies TaxMe as an Electronic Return Originator (ERO), Software Developer and Transmitter. Before e-filing with the IRS, TaxMe will extract the data you entered on its website. TaxMe then will massage the data to conform with IRS e-filing schema requirements (e.g., special characters will be eliminated, fields that are limited in length will be trimmed to meet the maximum allowed number of characters, etc). See IRS Publication 4163 for additional details. Before e-filing with the IRS, TaxMe will process the submitted data, including re-calculating the submitted data to check the calculated amounts. While TaxMe will not review the return from a substantive perspective, in certain situations, as a result of processing this data, TaxMe may discover error(s) on the return that require change(s). If a change is “non-substantive”, depending on the error, TaxMe may: 1) automatically make the change before e-filing to prevent the IRS from rejecting the submission for this reason or 2) automatically make the change after receiving an IRS rejection. In both situations, there would be a slight difference between .pdf downloaded from the TaxMe site and what was e-filed with the IRS. Given that such change would be non-substantive (i.e., immaterial), TaxMe will not be required to communicate this non-substantive change to you. In addition, given current software capabilities, TaxMe will not be able to update the .pdf so that it perfectly matches with the e-file submission (if non-substantive changes were made). Communications to and from the IRS will be from TaxMe by email, including the IRS acknowledgment file, which will explain whether the IRS accepted or rejected the submission. If rejected, the TaxMe rejection email will contain instructions of how to cure the submission, allowing for up to three re-files at no additional charge. You should keep the email correspondence as part of your records. Non-Substantive Change Defined: Tax-me follows the IRS definition, which are periodically updated. Currently, a “non-substantive” change is a correction limited to a transposition error, misplaced entry, spelling error or arithmetic correction (“Mechanical Assistance Exception”). The IRS considers all other changes substantive.
TaxMe does not issue refunds for the filing fee associated with duplicate returns or returns that do not match the return types established by the IRS. A duplicate return is a return that already has been filed with the IRS, either in paper or electronic format, either through a third-party provider or through the TaxMe website. However, TaxMe will issue a refund only for the portion of the fee paid applicable to the Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW) request. Furthermore, tax returns filed electronically are matched against certain data on IRS systems, such as type of form. If, for example, IRS data shows that a taxpayer files Form 941, but in fact the taxpayer files Form 944, the system will identify the mismatch and reject the return, resulting in a reject notification to the taxpayer. Under these circumstances, TaxMe will not issue a refund for a return that does not match the return type established by the IRS.

This term and condition is limited to tax payments only. You may use our tax payment service to make federal tax payments due on your Form 940, 941, 944 returns. Please be aware that you are responsible for the timely payment of employment taxes for your employees, even if you have authorized a third party to make the payments. Therefore, the Internal Revenue Service recommends that you enroll in the U.S. Treasury Department's Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) to monitor your account and ensure that timely tax payments are being made for you. Please refer to Publication 15 (Circular E), Employer's Tax Guide for additional information explaining the requirements for paying employment taxes.
The term "bank account" means a checking account or savings account established in your name or your business name at a bank or other financial institution. You may only designate a bank account held in your name or your business name for debiting to make a payment. A transaction fee "Service Fee" will be assessed for each tax payment made through our website. The term, "Business Day", means Monday through Friday, except for holidays.
TaxMe reserves the right to limit the maximum amount of a payment, and to reject a payment submission, in its sole discretion.
Payment submissions must be scheduled by 6 p.m. ET the day before the due date to be received timely by the IRS. The funds will move out of your bank account on the date you select for settlement or the next Business Day, whichever comes first. An Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Acknowledgment number will be assigned to your federal tax payment. This number is your receipt. An inquiry PIN will be sent to your address on record via regular mail. This PIN will allow you to check payment history at EFTPS.gov or by phone. This PIN number cannot be used to make payments via EFTPS.gov.
YOUR ARE RESPONSIBLE TO DOWNLOAD AND SAVE THE DOCUMENTATION YOU ARE GIVEN WHEN YOU SUBMIT A TAX PAYMENT REQUEST, AND CHECK IT AGAINST THE ACCOUNT STATEMENT YOU RECEIVE FROM YOUR BANK. QUESTIONS ABOUT PAYMENT SUBMISSIONS MUST BE DIRECTED TO THE BANK OR FINANCIAL INSTITUTION WHERE YOU HAVE YOUR ACCOUNT. We do not send periodic statements listing your payment requests. If you need copies of any tax payment request documents submitted through our website, send us a reply email to the original communication sent to you when the tax payment request was initiated.
A Service Fee will be assessed for each tax payment request. The Service Fee will be disclosed to you prior to your final Authorization and you will be given the option of not proceeding with the tax payment request if you do not wish to pay the Service Fee. TaxMe will process a tax payment request only when the Service Fee is paid in full. You agree that the Service Fee is a fee for the use of the Service and is not a debt collection fee or a surcharge imposed for making federal tax payments via direct debit.
If there are insufficient funds ("NSF") in your bank account to cover a tax payment request, or if your bank rejects a debit for any reason, the payment will be cancelled. NO REFUNDS of the Service Fee will be issued for cancelled payments. If a refund is issued and the amount of the refund is over $50.00, TaxMe will reduce the refund by the merchant fee charged by its payment provider. You agree that if a payment is cancelled, you may be liable for interest, late fees and other charges and any fees charged by the financial institution where you have your bank account. TaxMe is not responsible for any of these fees arising from cancelled payments. Payment requests cannot be cancelled once your bank account has been debited.
Third-party use of this services is prohibited. By using this service, you certify that: (i) you have the authority to execute payments, (ii) that you are submitting a tax payment request on your own behalf, or as an employee, owner or principal of the employer, (iii) you are not using this Service under a claim of agency or other third-party relationship on behalf of an employer, and (iv) that you are not using this Service for profit, financial gain, or any commercial benefit. You hereby agree to be liable to us for all costs and fees associated with processing all payment requests submitted by you in violation of this condition and to be liable to us for all other damages, costs, fees, expenses, and reasonable attorney fees incurred by us arising out of, or related to, your breach of this condition.
Tell us AT ONCE via email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe someone has used or may use this service without your authorization. All pending payment requests will be suspended and any active enrollments with the EFTPS will be terminated. You should also contact your financial institution. All debits to your bank account are made through the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). Contact the EFTPS immediately if you believe someone has used or may use your bank account without your permission.
