Tax Time is Coming! Get Ready With Visa Prepaid!


It’s that time of year again.  Time when 1099’s, W-2’s, W-2G’s and any other tax form you can think of, start arriving in your mailbox.  Even though I don’t like filling out all of the required info on what can seem like a lengthy form, I ALWAYS look forward to receiving our refund.  It means paying bills, a special dinner out with the family and a small shopping trip to get the kids new clothing.

In the past, we’ve waited what seemed like forever for that paper check and then eventually we switched to direct deposit to our joint marital account.  Now there is another great option to receive your tax refund fast – load it onto your Visa Prepaid card.

  Why should you consider going this route?

The advantages of loading your 2012 tax refund onto a Visa Prepaid card include:

  • Receiving your card in the mail, with no check to cash.
  • Much safer than cash and can be replaced in the unfortunate event of your card being lost, damaged or stolen.
  • You can pay bills or shop online or over the phone with this great option.

Be sure to check out the Visa Prepaid YouTube Channel for more information and other helpful tips.
