File your taxes and apply for an Easy Advance.

Easy Advance Info

An Easy Advance (EA) is a no recourse loan secured by a taxpayer’s tax refund to eligible applicants. If approved, a Finance Charge will apply. Advance money is typically available within 24 hours of IRS acceptance of the tax refund.4 There will be no collections activity on unfunded taxpayers.

Upon receipt of a Federal or State tax refund, the EA is repaid by deducting the loan amount and Finance Charge from the refund. After repayment, the remaining amount of the refund is disbursed to the taxpayer by the same disbursement option chosen for the EA proceeds.

* To be eligible for the $6,000 loan amount, your expected Federal refund less authorized fees must be at least $7,000.
