Who is Santa Barbara Tax Products Group?
Santa Barbara Tax Products Group is used to process your refund when you elect to have your tax preparation fees deducted from your refund. Therefore, your review page is showing a Direct Deposit to them. Once they process your refund and we receive our fees, the remainder will be deposited into the account you provided.
Where can I see the information SBTPG has?
