PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND EACH PROVISION. THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.
You may use the Services only if you can form a binding contract with Company, and only in compliance with this Agreement and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. Any use or access to the Services by anyone under 13 is strictly prohibited and in violation of this Agreement. The Services are not available to any users of the Services (“Users”) previously removed from the Services by Company.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you are hereby granted a non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable, freely revocable license to use the Services as permitted by the features of the Services. Company reserves all rights not expressly granted herein in the Services and the Company Content (as defined below). Company may terminate this license at any time for any reason or no reason.
Your Company account gives you access to the Services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion. We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users. If you open a Company account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) “you” includes you and that entity, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement, and that you agree to this Agreement on the entity’s behalf. By connecting to Company with a third-party service, you give us permission to access and use your information from that service as permitted by that service, and to store your log-in credentials for that service.

A. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in San Francisco County, California for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that San Francisco County, California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
B. Arbitration. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM COMPANY. For any dispute with Company, you agree to first contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Company has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, Inc. (“JAMS”), under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in San Francisco County, California, unless you and Company agree otherwise. If you are using the Services for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Services for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Company from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.
C. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver. WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICES FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.

C. Entire Agreement/Severability. This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Company in connection with the Services, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Company concerning the Services. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.

Your use of the Services provided by Company are subject to the Agreement above including these additional terms and conditions which govern your use of the Services indicated below (“Additional Terms”). These Additional Terms shall prevail over any conflict or inconsistency with the general Terms of Service above.
A. Number of Returns. You may use the Services solely for the preparation and filing of federal and/or state tax return(s) for which you have paid the applicable fee(s), and after proper registration and any applicable payment, and, if expressly stated in writing to receive tax accounting advice.
B. Additional Examples of Restrictions on Use. You may not use the Services to prepare tax returns, schedules or worksheets on a professional or commercial basis (i.e., for a preparer’s or other fee).
A. State Services. The term “Services” includes any state version of the Services made available through this website, which may be subject to additional fees as described on the website.
B. Tax Filing Preparation Services.
(1) We will prepare your income tax returns from information you will furnish to us. We will not audit or otherwise verify the data you submit, although we may ask you for clarification of some of the information. Your clarification may help to avoid improper reporting and possible penalties. You will furnish us with all the necessary information required for preparing the returns.
(2) Our work in the preparation of tax returns cannot be relied upon to discover errors, fraud, defalcations, or other irregularities, should any exist. We assume you are properly and timely discharging any and all other tax reporting obligations for which you are responsible. Our tax preparation Services are limited to the preparation of state and federal income tax returns, and does not include consultation on any other taxation issues, including local or sales taxation, unless expressly stated in writing. Our tax preparation Services pertain only to the tax year and the tax returns specified in the Services, and our responsibilities do not include preparation of any other tax returns that may be due to any taxing authority. Our tax preparation Services are provided for your benefit only, and no third party may rely on our work during the course of providing the Services.
(3) In accumulating your tax information, it is important you understand the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) and state recordkeeping requirements. Taxing authorities, by regulation, generally require you to both maintain and retain information substantiating all items reported on your returns. It is important you maintain a record system satisfying these requirements. Documentation requirements are especially important for charitable contribution, travel, entertainment, home office, auto and computer use deductions. Written documentation relating to the specific type and amount of charitable contributions made may be required in order to claim the deduction.
(4) If expressly stated in writing, during the course of providing the Services, we may provide you with business and tax advice, but we are not obligated to do so. We will put all advice on which you may rely in writing. We believe this is necessary to avoid any confusion and make clear the specific nature of our advice. You should not rely on any unwritten advice from us.
(5) In analyzing the tax information, we may discover there are conflicting authorities on how you may report (or not report) an item or transaction on your tax returns. There are many tax authorities (court cases, statutes, regulations, etc.), and these are constantly changing. If there is a reasonable justification for doing so, we will use our professional judgment to resolve questions in your favor where a tax law is unclear. If we report an item or transaction based on a conflicting authority favoring you as opposed to the IRS or other state taxing agencies, there is a possibility the IRS or state taxing agencies may disagree with our position. For federal income tax returns, for each specific position taken on a given issue, the position generally must either satisfy the substantial-authority standard or be formally disclosed on IRS Form 8275 or 8275-R, which form would be filed as part of the federal income tax return. We will not be able to take a position on a federal income tax return if we do not believe that these requirements are met. Similar requirements may be applicable to state income tax returns. Improperly valuing an item, inadvertently omitting information or a transaction, understating a tax liability, or taking a position contrary to the IRS or state taxing agencies could result in the IRS or state taxing agencies assessing you a penalty. Though we will provide guidance, you have the final responsibility for the accuracy of each item on the returns, as well as, the overall correctness of the returns. As such, if the IRS should later contest the position taken, there may be an assessment of additional tax plus interest and penalties. We assume no liability for any such additional tax, penalties or other assessments. You acknowledge that any such understated tax, and any imposed interest and penalties, are your responsibility, and that we have no responsibility in that regard.
(6) The United States imposes reporting requirements with respect to persons having certain direct and indirect interests in a foreign bank account or other foreign financial asset. Failure to comply with these reporting requirements may result in substantial civil and criminal penalties. You accept responsibility for informing us if you believe that you may have foreign reporting requirements with the U.S. Department of the Treasury and/or Internal Revenue Service and you agree to timely provide us with the information necessary to prepare the appropriate form(s). We assume no liability for penalties associated with the failure to file, or untimely filing, of any of these forms.
(7) We will provide you with such additional support services in your response to inquiries or examinations by taxing authorities as offered to you in writing.
