Someone who refers a business(es) to Innovation Refunds as part of the Refer & Earn
Program, is called a “Referrer.” Any business a Referrer refers to Innovation Refunds is called a “Referee.”
An individual or business seeking to participate in the Refer & Earn Program as a Referrer should provide their name, phone number, and email address here. The email address provided will then receive a unique referral link that the individual or business may send to Referees. Referrers must inform all Referees that the Referrer may receive compensation or another reward if Referee uses the Referrer’s link to sign up and work with Innovation Refunds and its partners for the filing and receipt of Referee’s tax credit. By participating in the Refer & Earn Program, each and every Referrer hereby agrees to provide, and commits to providing, such notice to Referees in every instance.
If a Referee becomes a Qualified Referral, as defined in section 2 below and subject to Innovation Refunds’ sole discretion, the Referrer for that Referee will qualify for a reward from our program, currently a $1,000 eGift card (“Gift Card”) per Qualified Referral. Innovation Refunds may, in its sole discretion, choose to change this amount or reward-type at any time. Gift Cards are subject to the Gift Card issuer’s terms and conditions, which Referee hereby agrees to comply with. No third-party reward provider is a sponsor of the Refer & Earn Program.
Gift Cards constitute taxable income and any Referrer hereby agrees to provide Innovation
Refunds with a fully-completed W-9 form upon request.
Any Referrer qualifying for a Gift Card, will be sent an email with a digital token and instructions for claiming their reward. Referrers must claim their reward within four (4) months of receiving this email. This email will permit Referrers to select either a physical gift card for mailing to them (shipping and handling fees apply, and are currently $3), or a digital gift card for more immediate use. Innovation Refunds and/or its partner will send this email within forty-five (45) days of Innovation Refunds receiving signed invoice from the Qualified Referral’s tax filing. Gift Card funds are valid for seven (7) months from issuance.
By participating in the Refer & Earn Program, you represent and warrant: (1) as a Referrer, that you have a personal or professional relationship with your Referree(s) (e.g., you know them or they are part of your social media network); and (2) as a Referrer or Referee, that you will comply with all applicable laws, rules, regulations, contractual terms, and/or policies related to your participation in the Refer & Earn Program.

amounts, at any time and for any reason, with or without notice to you;
2. Terminate your Innovation Refunds account and/or involvement in the Refer &Earn
Program and/or delay, cancel, revoke, or prevent payment on any Gift Card or other reward, if we, in our sole discretion, deem any of your related behavior as fraudulent, abusive, unethical, suspicious, a misuse of the Refer & Earn Program or other Innovation Refunds product or service, or otherwise inconsistent with applicable law, rules, regulations, contractual terms, policies, and/or Refer & Earn Program Terms; and
