I found this blog to be very helpful and informative. I have 2 additional questions. 1. Have you heard what percentage of tax reutrns will be converted to XML for the upcoming tax season? I've heard all 1040EZs, most 1040As, and many of the simple 1040s. I would love to advertise "refunds in 3-5 days" vs "10-17 days".
2. Can you give a comparism of SBBT and Republic bank? ie, fees, customer service to clients and tax preparers, post season requirements, incentives, marketing perks, etc. Thanks in advance

Besides the obvious impact on tax preparers and the IRS, I'd like to know what my fellow tax preparers think about this "Fair Tax Plan" which would replace income taxes and the IRS with a national sales tax.

As for me, I'm all for it. I'd have to be re-trained to do something else (perhaps prepare sales tax documents for businesses), But I'm willing to sacrifice my business if it means gettting rid of the IRS and incomes. Your thoughts please?

I have not seen a time table for XML conversion. But the last I read, 2009 was the goal for the conversion to be complete.
As for the RAL bank comparison, I would check out the web site for each for the details of their programs. I can't give a first hand comparison of customer service since I have not used Republic. I would check some the the tax groups and forums for advice.

I think SBBT bank is one of the kinds. They claim to have over 7 Billion but when I called to check the status of our office bank application, the wait was over 1 hour!! Even 800-829-1040 will not put you on hold for over 20 min.
