Frequently asked questions

Is TaxMax part of Car City?

All tax return preparation and filing will be handled exclusively by Tax Refund Services, Inc., DBA Tax Max. *Refund Advances are based upon bank approval by EPS Financial.

Will Car City have someone at their location preparing my tax return?

Our Car City sales managers can help direct you to the Tax Max website where you will upload your documents there and start the tax return process. There will not be any Tax Max representatives at any of our dealerships.

How will I receive my tax return if I am owed money?

Tax Max will file your return and if eligible for a return, you will receive your funds on a physical debit card issued by the bank affiliated with Tax Max. The card will be held at the location you select, so please be sure to select the Car City location that works best for you.

Will Car City mail my debit card?

No, Car City will not be able to send your funds through the mail. All cards must be picked up at a store and we will require a government issued form of identification, this can be your driver's license.

Do I have to come into the store to have my taxes filed?

The great thing about partnering with Tax Max is that you can file your taxes from anywhere that is convenient for you! However, to receive any tax refund owed to you, you must visit the Car City location you have selected above to physically pick up the debit card.

If I want my vehicle delivered, can the debit card be sent along with the vehicle?

We’re sorry, but Car City will not be able to send your debit card with one of our drivers. You can file online, but you will need to visit our store location to pick up your debit card.

Who can I contact if I have questions about my tax filing?

Contact information for a Tax Max representative will appear throughout the process in case you have any questions or need assistance.
