Refund Transfer is an optional tax refund-related product provided by MetaBank®, N.A., Member FDIC. Refund Transfer is a bank deposit product, not a loan. You can file your return and receive your refund without applying for a Refund Transfer. Payments you authorize from the account associated with your Refund Transfer will reduce the net proceeds of your refund sent to you. Fees apply. A qualifying expected tax refund and e-filing are required. Other restrictions apply; see terms and conditions for details. H&R Block Maine License Number: FRA2. ©2021 HRB Tax Group, Inc.
