Can and how can I get a loan to get my federal return

Some customers will have the opportunity to apply for a no-fee Refund Advance. The Refund Advance offer is not available to all customers at this time. Unfortunately, there is no way to self-select into the offer.

If you apply for a Refund Advance, your application will need to be approved by First Century Bank, N.A. before you can receive your advance.  You will also need to be approved for a Turbo Prepaid Visa Card.

If the Refund Advance offer is available to you, you will be able to select it in the Your refund info step of the File section. The Turbo Prepaid Visa Card option does not include a Refund Advance. Here’s an example of what you’ll see if you have the opportunity to apply for a Refund Advance.

You must completely fill out your tax return, including entering your tax forms (like a W2 or a 1099), before you can apply for Refund Advance. You cannot apply for Refund Advance after you file your taxes.

Please refer to the page below for more information.
