Refundo, a provider of low-cost tax-related bank products, has partnered with online- and app-payment provider Stripe to allow tax offices to accept credit card payments through Refundo’s online platform.

Preparers can process credit card payments from their Refundo system dashboard. Card payments are charged at Stripe's standard pricing of 2.9 percent plus 30 cents per transaction.

"We're always on the lookout for new ways to streamline the tax preparer's workflow and create new opportunities to increase sales," said Refundo co-founder and CEO Roger Chinchilla. "Setting up a merchant account is a lot more time consuming, expensive, and confusing than it needs to be. With [this deal], we've made it easy for tax professionals everywhere to set up their own accounts to accept credit card payments instantly with Refundo."

Stripe lists software makers Xero, Zoho Books, KashFlow, Wave and FreeAgent among its customers.
