Loan in the amount of $500 or 25% of your expected refund has an Annual Percentage Rate (APR) of 0.00%, a minimum loan amount of $500 and a maximum loan of $2,500. Loan in the amounts of 50% or 75% of your expected tax refund have an APR of 36.0%.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW CARD ACCOUNT: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens a Card Account. What this means for you: When you open a Card Account, we will ask you for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see a copy of your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
