You also agree that all documents may be electronically signed. You agree that the electronic signatures appearing on the documents produced by the company’s web-based platform are the same as handwritten signatures for the purposes of validity, enforceability and admissibility. By signing as indicated in the company’s website, you expressly agree that your electronic signature is legally binding for the relevant form, including but not limited to Form 8879-EMP (IRS e-file signature authorization).

6. E-file Process And Data Modification.

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, or received from PayME, LLC, which is a registered site of TaxMe that was created to facilitate data collection. 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 or the PayME sites 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) produced on PayME, LLC’s website. 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.

11. General Provisions.

The Terms of Use and the relationship between you and TaxMe shall be governed by the laws of the State of Virginia without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Any and all disputes arising from or in connection with the TaxMe Site shall be subject to binding arbitration conducted by a single arbitrator in Richmond, Virginia pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association, as now or hereafter amended; provided, however, that TaxMe shall be entitled to seek injunctive and other equitable relief in any forum of competent jurisdiction to enforce these Access Terms of Use or its rights in the TaxMe Site and its content without first seeking or obtaining any decision in arbitration. No failure or delay of TaxMe to exercise or enforce any right or remedy under these Access Terms of Use shall constitute a waiver thereof. If any provision of these Access Terms of Use is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Access Terms of Use remain in full force and effect.
