MoneyLion Partners with Column Tax to Offer Customers Free Tax Services
With this partnership, eligible MoneyLion users have access to a simplified tax filing process that saves them time and cost associated with similar services
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MoneyLion Inc. (“MoneyLion”) (NYSE: ML), the go-to destination for personalized financial content, financial products and advice, today announced it is offering eligible MoneyLion users free tax filing services through its new partnership with Column Tax, a personal income tax software company.
Through this partnership, MoneyLion offers a simple, accessible way for its RoarMoney℠ Banking (a FDIC-insured demand deposit account that delivers a full set of premium banking features) customers to file taxes at no cost to the customer. This integration means eligible users are able to file directly within MoneyLion’s app without having to rely on external services that are difficult to use and often have hidden fees. Users can file taxes seamlessly in minutes, with most applications taking less than 15 minutes to file. Additionally, users who file their taxes through MoneyLion will have access to their return up to two days earlier than if they had used another service provider.
“MoneyLion’s strategic partnership with Column Tax allows us to continue to democratize access to financial services and education to all Americans,” said Tim Hong, Chief Product Officer at MoneyLion. “Our missions are closely aligned, as they seek to educate and enable every American to have seamless access to their tax refunds so they can save, invest, pay off debt and meet their financial goals throughout the year. By offering our users high quality services and education, we aim to bring additional value to our offerings and help people take control of their finances.”
MoneyLion is pairing its new offering of tax filing services with a suite of relevant educational content to help its customers navigate the challenges of this tax season. Access to information, ease of use and transparency of cost are paramount considerations to both companies.
“We are excited to partner with MoneyLion who is a leader in the digital financial services industry,” said Gavin Nachbar, Co-founder and CEO of Column Tax. “By partnering with an app like MoneyLion that focuses on an individual's financial life and goals, Column Tax can easily ingest that data and give people a jump on their tax filing by providing accurate and efficient services.
