Cash App Taxes is not an accountant or financial, tax, or legal advisor. Use of our Services is not a replacement for personal and professional advice or assistance regarding your taxes from a qualified tax professional. Based on the information you input into the Services, we may provide you recommendations about credits, deductions, and exemptions you may be eligible for or prompt you to complete additional tax forms. Any recommendations provided by our Services are dependent on accurate, complete, and updated information provided by you and we do not guarantee that the recommendations are in all cases appropriate or applicable to you.
Please consult a professional who can help with your specific financial, tax, or legal situation.
While Cash App Taxes helps you electronically file (or paper file) your income tax returns, you are responsible for your income tax returns and the accuracy and completeness of the information contained therein. It is critical that you review your return carefully before authorizing Cash App Taxes to submit your return to the IRS or state tax authorities.
You are solely responsible for the completeness, accuracy, and timely submission of your tax returns. Use of Cash App Taxes does not supplant your individual responsibilities and obligations to state and federal tax regulators.
It is your responsibility to provide Cash App Taxes with complete, accurate, and updated information. Our Services do not include any audit, tax planning, or tax structuring services. We do not offer you tax advice or legal advice about your unique tax situation and we urge you to consult with a qualified tax professional to help you determine whether the tax positions you take in your tax return filed through Cash App Taxes is appropriate for your situation and complies with applicable law. You agree that you are solely responsible for the positions contained in your tax returns. You further acknowledge and agree that Cash App Taxes is not responsible for determining or alerting you to as whether a tax-reporting position you have taken in filing your return using our Service is legally permissible or appropriate for your situation.You understand that taking aggressive tax-reporting positions may increase your risk of audit. Cash App Taxes is not obligated to assist you with any audits. If after using Cash App Taxes you are subsequently audited by a tax authority or regulator, you will be solely responsible for your defense and any costs, fees, or additional tax payments associated with the audit.
We don't provide tax structuring or tax legal advice. Depending on the choices you make in preparing your income tax returns and the positions you take in your income tax returns, you may be more or less likely to be audited. We are not responsible for the audit and cannot help you with audits.
Cash App Taxes offers e-filing services for U.S. federal income taxes and most states that permit e-filing to help you submit your tax returns. However, you remain responsible for filing your income tax returns (whether on paper or electronically) by the applicable deadlines. When e-filing is not available or you elect not to use e-file options through our Services, you may need to submit paper copies of your income tax returns to the IRS and/or state tax authorities by the appropriate deadlines. Your tax return is not filed until it is accepted by the applicable tax authority in the method and manner specified by the tax authority. Your return must be accepted by the applicable tax authority before it is considered filed.
You're solely responsible for filing your taxes on time and may need to mail in your income tax returns if e-filing is not available or if you choose not to e-file. The applicable tax authority has to accept your return before it is considered filed.

You and Cash App Taxes agree that any and all "Disputes," defined as any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services, except those that are resolved informally or brought in a small claims court, will be arbitrated by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same individual damages and individual relief that a court can. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THESE TERMS WILL ONLY BE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO HAVE YOUR CASE DECIDED BY A JURY AND YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST CASH APP TAXES. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class or representative arbitration).
Before an arbitration is commenced, you and Cash App Taxes agree to attempt to avoid the costs of formal dispute resolution by giving each other a full and fair opportunity to address and resolve a dispute informally. Both parties recognize that this is an important requirement, and that breach of this requirement would be a material breach of the Agreement. To provide this opportunity, before commencing any arbitration or suit, each party agrees to send to the other party a written Notice ("Notice"). Any Notice to Cash App Taxes should be sent by mail to Cash App Taxes, Inc., Attn: Arbitration Provision, PO Box 427069, San Francisco, CA 94142. Please note that any other correspondence other than a Notice or an Opt Out sent to this PO Box will not receive a reply. Any Notice sent to you will be sent to the address on file for your account. The Notice must: (i) include your name and account number; (ii) provide detailed information sufficient to evaluate the merits of the claiming party's individualized claim and for the other party to determine if an amicable resolution is possible; and (iii) set forth the specific relief sought, including whatever amount of money is demanded and the means by which the demanding party calculated the claimed damages. Both parties agree that they will attempt to resolve a dispute through an informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the Notice is sent. After that sixty (60) day period and not before, either party may elect, in writing sent to the other party, that it will pursue the matter either through small claims court or arbitration. The party receiving the notice shall then have seven (7) days to respond, including to elect for the case to be heard by a small claims court with jurisdiction. If either party elects small claims court, the dispute will be resolved in that forum and not through arbitration. Each party agrees that state courts in the City and County of San Francisco, California, or federal court for the Northern District of California, referenced below, may enter injunctive relief to enforce the pre-filing requirements of this paragraph, including an injunction to stay an arbitration that has been commenced in violation of this paragraph.
f we are not able to resolve the dispute by informal negotiation or, as provided below, in a small claims court, all disputes will be resolved finally and exclusively by binding individual arbitration with a single arbitrator (the "Arbitrator") administered by the American Arbitration Association (https://www.adr.org) according to this Section and the Consumer Arbitration Rules through the Procedures for the Resolution of Disputes through Document Submission (the "Desk/Documents Only" arbitration) (the "AAA Rules"), including Rule D-3(b), except you and Cash App Taxes will have the right to file early or summary dispositive motions and so long as the claim is arbitrable under the AAA Rules. Except as set forth above, and for disputes subject to jurisdiction in small claims court, the Arbitrator shall be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether the Cash App Taxes Agreement (or any aspect thereof) are enforceable, unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel.
Subject to applicable jurisdictional requirements, either party may elect to pursue a dispute in a local small-claims court rather than through arbitration so long as the matter remains in small claims court and proceeds only on an individual basis. If a party has already submitted an arbitration demand to the AAA but before an arbitrator has been selected, the other party can send a written notice to the opposing party that it wants the dispute decided by a small claims court. After receiving this notice and consistent with Consumer Rule 9, the AAA will administratively close the case.
The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, including its procedural provisions, fully applies. So long as it is consistent with the AAA Rules, including Rule D-3(b), the arbitration shall occur through the submission of documents to one arbitrator. To the extent any in-person arbitration hearing is required, the arbitration hearing will take place as close to your hometown as practicable. The Arbitrator's award will be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Cash App Taxes values your privacy, particularly with respect to your financial transactions and data. Each of the parties shall maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration and shall not (without the prior written consent of the other party) disclose to any third party the fact, existence, content, award, or other result of the arbitration, except as may be necessary to enforce, enter, or challenge such award in a court of competent jurisdiction or as otherwise required by applicable law. While an arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief, the Arbitrator may do so only with respect to the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual party's claim. The Arbitrator's decision and judgment thereon will not have a precedential or collateral estoppel effect.
In accordance with the AAA Rules, the party initiating the arbitration (either you or us) is responsible for paying the applicable filing fee. For purposes of this arbitration provision, references to you and Cash App Taxes also include respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors, successors and assigns as well as authorized users or beneficiaries of the Services.
You may reject this provision, in which case only a court may be used to resolve any dispute. To reject this provision, you must send us an opt-out notice (the "Opt Out") within thirty (30) days after you create a Cash App Taxes account or we first provide you with the right to reject this provision. The Opt Out must be mailed to Cash App Taxes, Inc., Attn: Arbitration Provision, PO Box 427069, San Francisco, CA 94142. For your convenience, we are providing an opt out notice form you must fill in to Opt Out. You must complete this form by providing your name, address, phone number and the email address(es) you used to sign up and use the Services. This is the only way of opting out of this provision. Opting out will not affect any other aspect of the Agreement or the Services, and will have no effect on any other or future agreements you may reach to arbitrate with us. Please note that any other correspondence other than a Notice or an Opt Out sent to this PO Box will not receive a reply.
Subject to and without waiver of the arbitration provisions above, you agree that any judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions as discussed above) will be brought in and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state courts in the City and County of San Francisco, California, or federal court for the Northern District of California.
The Agreement is effective until your member account is deactivated by either you or Cash App Taxes and your use of our Service is discontinued. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any section of the Agreement that by its nature is intended to survive termination of the Agreement or your use or access to our Services or our Content will survive such termination.
The Agreement lasts until your account is deactivated and you completely stop using our Services (but there are a few parts that have to live on forever).
If you decide you want to deactivate your account you can do so by visiting the Cash App help page. Please see our Privacy Notice for more information about what we do with your information after you deactivate your account.
The Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, federal arbitration law, and the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in Section 9 "Dispute Resolution and Arbitration" the exclusive jurisdiction for all disputes that you and Cash App Taxes are not required to arbitrate will be the state and federal courts located in San Francisco, California, and you and Cash App Taxes each waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
The terms of the Agreement (including the Privacy Notice and any Additional Terms) constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between Cash App Taxes and you in connection with your use of our Services or our Content.
We may modify the Agreement at any time at our sole discretion. We will post modifications to these Terms of Services on this page. If a change materially modifies your rights or obligations, you may need to accept the modified terms to continue to use our Service. Material modifications will take effect when you accept the modified terms; immaterial modifications will take effect when published. If you continue to use our Services after we have posted updates or modifications to these terms, our Privacy Notice or any Additional Terms, you are agreeing to the Agreement as modified.
Change happens. When it does happen, we will update this agreement. If the changes are material, you may need to accept the changes to use our Services.
Cash App Taxes's failure to enforce any of its rights or act with respect to a breach of by you or others of the Agreement does not constitute a waiver of any rights and will not limit Cash App Taxes's rights with respect to that breach or any subsequent breaches. No waiver by Cash App Taxes of any of the provisions in the Agreement will be of any force or effect unless made in writing and signed by a duly authorized officer of Cash App Taxes.
If we waive some of our rights under this Agreement, it doesn't mean we waive our rights in other circumstances.
Cash App Taxes may assign the Agreement to any party at any time without notice to you. You may not assign your rights under the Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without our consent.
You can't transfer this agreement or your right to use the Services to someone else without our permission.
If any provision of the Agreement is unlawful, void, or unenforceable for any reason, then that provision will be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect. Nothing in the Agreement shall affect any non-waivable statutory rights or remedies that apply to you.
If a court or competent authority such as an arbitrator voids a term of this Agreement, the other terms will not be affected.
The titles and annotations, including any annotations provided herein, contained in these terms are inserted only as a matter of convenience and have no legal or contractual effect. The Agreement will not be construed against Cash App Taxes because we drafted it.
