What is a Tax Refund Advance loan? 

Tax Refund Advance loans are an opportunity to get money that you’re entitled to from your tax refund before you get the actual tax refund*. Sometimes the IRS can take weeks to send out your refund and life happens. You may need access to money you’re owed now, instead of later. At Jackson Hewitt, we recognize that problem and want to be your solution. With a Refund Advance, you can have money when you need it most and within a matter of minutes after you’re approved for a Tax Refund Advance loan.

Can I get my Tax Refund Advance loan in time for the holidays? 

Yes, you could get a Tax Refund Advance loan in December in time for Christmas and holiday shopping, and you could get even more money in January.

Stop into your local Jackson Hewitt office and, all totaled, you could get up to $4,500 before the IRS begins processing tax returns. First, you could get up to $1,000 in minutes, starting December 13 (Finance Charge applies). No one else offers a tax Refund Advance loan this big, this early! The Early Refund Advance loan could help cover the cost of your holiday shopping. Then, in January, when you come back to file your taxes, you could get up to $3,500. This can make a big difference if you can’t wait until your tax refund arrives a few weeks later. For many, the extra help now will help get 2023 off to a good start.
