HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO JOIN?
WHY DOESN’T ATP CHARGE JOINING FEES OR MODEL FEES?
ATP wants Partners to join with no risk, no investment, and with no commitment as this allows our Partners to experience us with ease. We are confident in our relationships with our Partners and our products and services.
ARE THERE ANY TRANSACTION FEES?
Yes. (Transaction fees come out of client’s refund. See more information under next tab) Advance Tax Preparation charges a small transaction flat fee per file. Unlike other companies that charge 50% of your preparation fee, ATP only charges a small flat fee per file. Let’s take a look at the benefits of joining ATP and save on fees:
OTHER COMPANIES’ FEES
Preparation fee: 300.00 (Your Money)
Other Companies Split 50/50 (ATP CHARGES SMALL FLAT FEE ONLY)
Your pay on this file is 150.00 from the other companies. We never do splits or percentages so that our Partners make majority of monies per file. We only charge a small flat fee per file regardless of how much you charge per file.
WHO PAYS ATP SMALL FLAT TRANSACTION FEE?
The transaction fee comes out of the customer’s refund. Partner (You) will incorporate ATP small flat fee within your preparation fee. If there’s no refund, the customer pays the small flat fee upfront.
ARE THERE IN HIDDEN FEES?
No, we only charge a small flat fee per file, which comes out of taxpayer’s refund. If there is no refund, the taxpayer pays the small flat transaction fee upfront. There are no other fees imposed by ATP as guaranteed in writing by ATP. Please remember there are always the customary fees clients are accustomed to paying imposed by banks and software companies.
