The Express Refund Advance is an optional tax refund related loan provided by MetaBank® (it is not the actual tax refund) at participating locations. Available for a limited time. The amount of the loan will be deducted from tax refunds and reduce the amount that is paid directly to the taxpayer. Fees for other optional products or product features may apply. Tax returns may be filed electronically without applying for this loan. Loans offered in amounts of $100, $200, $500, $750, $1,000 or $3,200. Only $200–$400 available no earlier than December 18, 2017 with a paystub (or other acceptable pre-year-end income verification), and remaining amounts available upon filing tax return with Jackson Hewitt® through the IRS. Availability and loan amount is subject to satisfaction of identity verification, eligibility criteria, and underwriting standards. IRS delays may affect the delivery timing of loan proceeds. Disbursement rules apply. Funds loaded onto card within an hour and direct deposit next business day. Ask Tax Pro for details.
