The Benefit Bank® online service (TBB™) can help you increase your income by applying for benefits and tax credits.
The Benefit Bank is designed to make it easier for you to do your own taxes and complete your own applications for benefits. The Benefit Bank explains the meanings of certain words used on the tax and benefit forms, explains some of the rules and regulations, and calculates the math for you.
The Benefit Bank does not make tax and benefit decisions for you; you must make those decisions. The information on your tax return and the decisions you make about how to file your taxes are your responsibility. This is also true for any benefits that you apply for using The Benefit Bank.
The Benefit Bank does not represent you, or act for you, to the IRS or any other government agency. Nor are we responsible for any actions that the IRS or any other government agency might take as a result of your use of The Benefit Bank.
The Benefit Bank online service does not verify any of the personal or tax information you include on your tax return or benefit forms. You are responsible for the accuracy of all information you provide.
The Benefit Bank online service is not a tax preparer, tax lawyer, or representative of any state or federal agency; nor are the organizations or counselors, if any, who may assist you in using The Benefit Bank online service. If you need or are seeking legal, accounting or professional advice, we strongly recommend that you contact a lawyer or tax professional for that assistance.
The tax and benefit information included in The Benefit Bank online service is general information that applies to many people, but not all of them. The Benefit Bank does not cover all possible situations.
The Benefit Bank online service is designed to be accurate and up-to-date. However, we cannot guarantee that the service is completely accurate, and we cannot guarantee that all the documents you fill out and send to the IRS or other agencies using The Benefit Bank are accurate, complete, or up-to-date. By using the online service, you are agreeing that you understand this.
The IRS and the other agencies that receive the tax forms or benefit forms have procedures to review, audit, and inspect the personal information that you enter into The Benefit Bank. All the information you enter into The Benefit Bank to do your taxes, or to complete benefit forms, should be as accurate as possible. This is your best protection if you are audited or investigated.
