"About 5 years ago I decided to require that any qualifying returns be e-Filed. It was a
great business decision! The biggest savings is in time assembling returns. I also save
paper and toner costs as I only have to print a client copy. I can also provide my clientele
with accurate refund dates."

ProSeries e-File Guarantee
Effective April 23, 2007, Intuit will offer ProSeries customers a guarantee of on-time submission of tax returns and if late, reimburse
for paid e-File fees and any assessed late filing penalties.
If any ProSeries customer is unable to submit to Intuit any federal or state tax return before the applicable filing deadline or Intuit fails to file
ProSeries customer-submitted returns with the appropriate tax agency before the applicable filing deadline and the lack of submission or
filing is due to a failure of Intuit's electronic filing system, Intuit will refund any applicable electronic filing fees, and reimburse the taxpayer for
any resulting penalties and interest levied and paid to the tax agency, upon submission of documentation reasonably acceptable to Intuit.
Intuit is not responsible for any failure by ProSeries customers to submit, or Intuit's failure to file, any federal or state tax return due to
reasons beyond its commercially reasonable control, including but not limited to internet outages or any deficiencies in the actual federal or
state returns that prevent filing.
