Loading Your Tax Refund On A Visa Prepaid Card: A Win, Win Situation #sweepstakes {US}

tax return fast on visa prepaid

Do these two words make you shudder——>tax season? I’ll admit, tax season fills me with some angst. It’s not only the process of filing taxes that fills with me anxiety, it’s the process of patiently waiting for my tax refund! Let’s face it, most of us want {or need} our tax refund money like yesterday. There are bills to pay, home or auto repairs to be made, and maybe a splurge or two to be had.

If you don’t want to provide the Internal Revenue Service [IRS] with your banking information in order to have your refund direct deposited, there’s another option. And no, it’s not sitting around waiting for the post office to deliver your check. The solution? Having your tax refund loaded onto a Visa Prepaid card.

When you use a Visa Prepaid card for your tax refund, you’ll get it quicker {vs. waiting on the mail} and you won’t have to drive anywhere to cash the check. It’s also safer. Did you know that if your Visa Prepaid card is damaged, lost, or stolen it will be replaced? Can you imagine trying to get your tax refund check replaced by the IRS if it were lost in the mail?! Yikes!

Personally, I like the fact that I can use the Visa Prepaid card to budget my money. Using the prepaid card allows me to see how much money I’m spending and how much money is remaining. How many of you have received your tax refund only to ask yourself a month later, “where did it all go”? Don’t guess. Take control of your tax refund with the Visa Prepaid Card.

    That is a really great idea! Unfortunately I don\’t think I\’ll be getting a refund this year. It should still work next year though…I\’ll keep it in mind.

    Isn’t this brilliant! If I were entitled to a refund, I’d sign up in a second. We end up owing {not too much} each year, at least uncle Sam isn’t using my money interest free!

    I didn’t know you could load your taxes on a Visa card. That is great. I dread doing taxes!
