Bright!Tax Terms of Service

This is the Terms of Service Agreement for our website, located at brighttax.com, as owned and operated by Bright!Tax. This was last updated on January 1, 2018. This Agreement is between you and Bright!Tax and is governed by the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN Act).

Limited License

Bright!Tax grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to access and use our website and service strictly in accordance with this agreement. Your use of our website and service are solely for the purposes as provided in this agreement. No print out or electronic version of any part of our website may be used by you in any litigation or arbitration matter whatsoever under any circumstances.

Engagement Agreement

We will prepare your federal & state income tax returns as requested, based on information that you furnish to us. We will not audit or otherwise verify the information you submit. You agree to review the return to ensure that names, addresses, social security numbers and other income and deduction information contained within have been reported properly.

In the event that your Bright!Tax prepared return is audited, we are happy to support you through the process to the extent that it includes providing the IRS with calculations and information in our possession that were used to prepare your return. Audit support beyond the original scope of your return may entail additional fees.

All information provided to us will be kept confidential except when 1) required by law or per tax authority regulation, or 2) upon the express direction of the client. Please see our privacy policy for more information regarding how we collect and secure your data.

Your Bright!Tax CPA may file an extension on your behalf. Please note that any extension that we may file on your behalf does not extend the due date of tax due related to a return, and that making tax payment after the April 15th deadline may subject the client to penalties and interest.

Claims for Computational Inaccuracies

If there is a computational inaccuracy in the processing of your tax return, we will pay to you the amount of the penalty and interest that may be assessed to you. The amount of the reimbursement to you will not exceed the fee that you paid for Bright!Tax services. Within 30 days of receiving an assessment by the taxing authority you need to notify Bright!Tax along with the relevant documents. This is the extent of the remedy, as allowed by law, and is the total obligation of Bright!Tax and its partners.

The arbitrator’s decision shall be final and legally binding and judgment may be entered thereon.

General Terms
