Early Refund Advance loans

*$1,000 only for well qualified applicants. Most loans will be $500. Use pay stub or other proof of income. The Early Refund Advance (“ERA”) is an optional tax refund related loan (not the actual tax refund) provided by MetaBank®, N.A., at participating locations for a limited time. The amount of the loan and applicable interest will be deducted from tax refunds and reduce the amount that is paid directly to the taxpayer. Fees for other optional products may apply. Tax returns may be filed electronically without applying for this loan. Loan amounts are $200, $500, and $1,000, with most approved applicants getting $500. The Early Refund Advance has an annual percentage rate (“APR”) of 35.9%. For example, a $500 loan borrowed over a 71-day term has an amount payable in a single payment totaling $534.92 ($500 loan balance plus $34.92 interest). Availability subject to ID verification, eligibility criteria, and underwriting standards. Disbursement rules apply. Loan available within 24 hours if disbursed on a prepaid card.
