UltimateTax Introduces Refund Transfer to Facilitate Tax Professionals and Payers

UltimateTax Logo

With the Refund Transfer bank product, tax preparing professionals get paid by the refund and do not need to wait for their clients to pay them.

MUSCATINE, IOWA, USA, January 23, 2018 / — UltimateTax, the premier provider of tax preparation software for the tax preparer industry introduced the refund transfer bank product to facilitate professional tax preparers. The remarkable product would simplify the process of refund transfer for tax preparing professionals, allowing them to acquire their preparation and authorization fees quickly and conveniently.

With the UltimateTax refund transfers, a tax preparer can now offer up to $2,500 in the form of an advance for the 3rd year in a row. The product will also help tax preparing professionals in expanding their business and reaching out to a vast base of clients.  The UltimateTax will also offer monthly billing options to tax preparers, which is the first time this has been done in this manner for the professional tax software industry.

Sharing more information about the refund transfer product, a spokesperson at UltimateTax reiterated, “At UltimateTax, we’re committed to providing our clients with the best in class refund options and solutions. With Refund Transfer, the tax preparing professionals will be able to deduct the fee for preparing tax as well as the authorized fees, directly from their client’s tax refunds.”

UltimateTax’s Refund Transfer product also provides tax filing individuals to acquire their tax refunds even when they do not have a bank account. It facilitates direct fund deposit and does not require them to wait for their refund checks. It must be noted that when the bank issues a bank refund via the states or IRS, it then deducts the authorized fee from the amount and later forwards the money to the respective parties automatically.

This implies that the fee for preparing tax returns is directly taken from the refund amount received by the client and later deposited into their accounts. This does not require them to make an upfront payment, and the tax preparing professionals also get paid at the time of federal or state deposit for the services provided by them. With this type of arrangement, the tax preparing professionals can operate their offices efficiently and grow as well as expand their practice conveniently.

After a client has selected the Refund Transfer product, there are several options for receiving their refund or disbursed amount. These options include; Receiving a direct deposit or check directly from the IRS or receiving a check (which can easily be printed in their offices), a prepaid card with Green Dot, or a Walmart Direct2Cash direct deposit.

As a result, their clients are able to cash their checks for a minor fee or go to a Walmart outlet for picking up their refund amount in the form of cash. Apart from this, they can also use their prepaid card that is directly loaded with the refund amount.

With Refund Transfer their clients can get their refunds secure and straightforward. Tax preparing professionals need to remind their clients to set up a bank account prior to filing their state and federal taxes. This would enable their clients to acquire their refund amount in a safe and hassle-free manner. It is not necessary for the client to have their own bank account to file their taxes. UltimateTax’s products provide a variety of options to receive their refund.

UltimateTax, which is a leading provider of taxation software, offers over twelve different standard features to facilitate tax preparing professionals in their tax filing process. With their launch pad feature, tax preparing professionals can view the standard options right on the front of their dashboards. This further helps them in speeding up their workflow. UltimateTax also offers the Free Conversions option to tax preparing professionals that further allows them to convert their data from their existing taxation program to UltimateTax. This enables them in saving a great deal of time required for updating their data and information on the UltimateTax software.

Phil Simms has formed a long-term alliance with nonprofits that serve communities, families and children.

Professional sports and broadcasting icon Phil Simms has formed a longtime alliance with community-based nonprofits which serve families and children

Investors (NASDAQ:ISBC)

Investors formed a relationship with Phil Simms because of his exceptional character, personal integrity, leadership and willingness to serve others.”

— Investors Bank President & CEO Kevin Cummings

ENGLEWOOD, NEW JERSEY , UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, January 23, 2018 / — Investors Bank and the Investors Foundation recently awarded $25,000 in grants to three community-based, not-for-profit organizations on behalf of professional sports and broadcasting icon Phil Simms. Mr. Simms, along with former NFL quarterback and sports broadcaster Boomer Esiason, are spokesmen for Investors Bank. The Bank and Mr. Simms share a long-term commitment to supporting and serving local and national nonprofits. The grants were presented during ceremonies held today in Investors Bank’s Englewood branch at 108 Engle Street.

Mr. Simms has generously served and assisted these three nonprofits, among others, since he joined the New York Giants football team in 1979. The grants were awarded to the Matthew Larson Foundation for Pediatric Brain Tumors, which is also known as the IronMatt Foundation, the Dr. Theodore Atlas Foundation, and the Wyckoff Family YMCA.

Mr. Simms and his family have unique relationships with each of these organizations. For example, the Simms are friends of the Larson family, whose son, Matt, courageously battled a rare brain cancer for five years before losing the battle. Also, Mr. Simms has been actively involved with the Dr. Atlas Foundation since its founding over 21 years ago. Mr. Simms brought his passion, enthusiasm and energy to the Wyckoff YMCA’s major projects, which include expanding their existing facilities to opening branch locations in adjoining towns.

During the ceremonies, Investors Bank President and CEO Kevin Cummings said, “Investors formed a relationship with Phil Simms because of his exceptional character, personal integrity, leadership and willingness to serve others. The synergy we have developed with Phil and Boomer Esiason has helped reinforce our message that Investors is putting “community” back into banking. We are also grateful for the opportunity that Phil and his family have provided for us to deepen our relationships with these local not-for-profits that assist our neighbors.”

Mr. Simms has helped each organization thrive by sharing his time, talents and resources. He and his wife Diana serve as honorary members of the IronMatt Foundation board. The Simms family assists the IronMatt Foundation by building awareness of the organization’s mission of funding scientists who are researching pediatric brain tumors and helping children and families affected by this disease. The Dr. Atlas Foundation serves families and individuals on Staten Island and elsewhere, especially young people, whose needs are often forgotten or overlooked. Mr. Simms draws much satisfaction from his support of the YMCA, which serves friends and neighbors in Wyckoff, as well as many people in nearby communities.

When presenting the grants to each nonprofit, Mr. Simms said, “I’m honored to be part of the Investors Bank team that is defined by a sincere commitment to their clients and the communities they serve. They have deeply honored my family and me by presenting the grants on our behalf today. Equally important, these local nonprofits and Investors Bank share a common mission of taking positive action that makes a significant and lasting difference to the local communities they serve.”

Investors Bank is on multi-year journey of growth, and in 2017 Phil and Boomer joined the team. As spokesmen, they have joined together to convey positive messages about Investors Bank, its brand and its employees. They have appeared in the Bank’s television and radio commercials, been featured in print and out-of-home advertising and participated in a series of ten online web videos. The video content, which is moderated by renowned sports journalist Bonnie Bernstein, focuses on a range of topics from leadership to community, coaching, trust and competency.

Darwin Automotive Incorporates Military Lending Act Smart Disqualify Technology Into F&I Platform

Darwin’s new feature helps protect dealers and lenders and provides transparency to active duty service members

ISELIN, NEW JERSEY, USA, January 23, 2018 / — Darwin Automotive, a leading F&I software provider for the automotive industry, today announced that it has integrated smart disqualify technology into its F&I platform that can disqualify products based on Military Lending Act (MLA) qualifications. It is incorporated into the platform for all users, at no charge, to help protect dealers and lenders and provide a high level of transparency to active duty service members.

The Military Lending Act was designed to protect active duty service members and their dependents in credit transactions and includes certain disclosures, arbitration provisions and a 36 percent interest rate cap on a finance agreement combined with ancillary and credit products. Until recently, motor vehicle finance transactions were believed to be exempt from the act and only auto title loans had to comply with it.

However, according to Phillip Battista, Darwin Automotive Chief Executive Officer, the Department of Defense's most recent interpretation, published last month, includes a set of rules that could retroactively put dealers and lenders in regulatory jeopardy. “If a vehicle finance contract for active military members or their dependents includes financing for credit-related products or services, such as guaranteed asset protection or other types of credit insurance, or provides cash-out financing, the creditor, which would be the dealership or lender, must comply with the act. Products and services such as upgraded in-vehicle technology or extended warranties are related to the vehicle and are exempt from the rule. But credit-related products and services, such as GAP and credit life insurance, are related to the finance transaction, not the vehicle, so they are included under the act,” said Battista.

“With Darwin, the needs of a consumer are paramount in determining which products and services can best fit those needs. Out of respect to men and women who have served, we want to provide the highest possible level of transparency at no cost and so have integrated MLA qualification screening into our Darwin platform at no charge to our dealer and lender clients,” Battista added.

Darwin was created by a team of F&I software pioneers that brought one of the first and most prominent electronic menus to market, ‘MenuVantage,’ and does more than just automate the interview. It uses a combination of algorithms to analyze in real time the customer’s answers to a set of needs-discovery questions, deal information, previous ownership history and any other details stored in the dealership’s DMS. Then, through predictive analytics, it produces a “Driver’s Needs Analysis,” which scores F&I products based on the buyer’s need and the likelihood the customer will purchase those protections.

Doubleview (TSX-V: DBV) – Provides Hat gold-copper porphyry deposit Update – 418 m @ 0.51% CuEq incl. 110 m @ 1.01% CuEq

Exploration update from Hat Gold-Copper, where drilling has identified a large gold-copper porphyry deposit that remains open in all directions.

Doubleview Capital Corp (TSX:DBV)

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, January 23, 2018 / — Doubleview Capital Corp. (“Doubleview”) (TSX-V: DBV) is pleased to announce an exploration update from its Hat porphyry project, where drilling in the past years has identified a large gold-copper porphyry deposit that remains open in all directions. The Hat project is located in the Sheslay district of northwest BC, Canada, approximately 95 km southwest of Dease Lake.

The latest Hat property update includes the deposit model and revised reported mineralized drill hole intercepts from the Lisle deposit. Doubleview also reveals plans for further exploration of the Hat property's emerging “Hoey Gold” area.

The following revised intercepts are from selected Lisle deposit drill holes, employing up-to-date values for gold, copper, silver, and cobalt, that reflect recent commodity prices.*

DH H-022: 418.28 m @ 0.51% CuEq – from 45.5m to 463.8m
DH H-022: 110.16 m @ 1.01% CuEq – from 304.9m to 415.0m


DH H-023: 332.37 m @ 0.56% CuEq – from 67.9m to 400.2m
DH H-023: 80.07 m @ 1.00% Cu Eq – from 270.6m to 350.7m

* CuEq figures employ the following metal prices: Gold: $1300/oz, Copper: $3.0/lb, Silver: $17/oz, and Cobalt: $35/lb. CuEq. calculations are presented in US dollars and will vary with market and currency fluctuations.

Cross section illustrations of the above drill holes are presented on the company's website at:

“These latest results offer further evidence of the Hat Project's potential,” said Doubleview CEO Farshad Shirvani. “The extensive mineralized length in some of the drill holes have not yet established limits either laterally or at depth.”

Interpretations of assays and geology of Lisle deposit drill holes and surface samples from Hoey area Gold and Copper showings (News Release dated October 19, 2017) demonstrate possible alignment and continuity between the areas that will be explored in the upcoming exploration season. Plans for resumption of Hat Project drilling are being finalized and will be announced in the near future.

Doubleview has reviewed the cobalt analyses from its 30 drill holes and with values as high as 2293 ppm cobalt concludes that cobalt is important as a pathfinder element that also adds value to the Hat project. Cobalt has many industrial uses and is a basic requirement of many components of the emerging renewable and sustainable energy and automotive industries.

Hat Project Exploration Update:

Doubleview also compiled available data from the Hoey and West Gossan mineral zones that are each located more than one kilometer from the Lisle Zone: both have strong surface mineralization with gold, copper, silver and cobalt values. Neither zone has been investigated by drilling. The areas are being given high priority for exploration when work at the Lisle Zone is resumed. Mr. Shirvani notes that surface samples from the Hoey Gold area have assays as high as 7% copper and 8.1 grams/tonne gold. The Hoey Gold area has the potential to be an important addition to the Hat Project.
Doubleview is financially well positioned to resume its exploration drilling. The Hat project is fully permitted for drilling and the 14 man camp and facilities have been maintained to enable an efficient start-up.
“The recent strong recoveries for copper, gold and most other metals markets has been accompanied by a return to mining profitability and a robust revival of mineral exploration activity. We believe strongly that this will be a pivotal year for the mining industry,” added Mr. Shirvani. “Accordingly, we see another successful year ahead for Doubleview.”

Mindful Leadership Expert Pandit Dasa, Brings Mindfulness Training to State Farm and Bank of Montreal

Mindful Leadership

Mindfulness training

Mindfulness Training

Companies are keen to introducing Mindfulness meditation and training for their top leaders.

Mindfulness is helping leaders develop the mindset that caring and supporting their employees is a more sustainable way of leading than leading with fear.

— Pandit Dasa

NEW YORK, NY, U.S.A., January 23, 2018 / — Whether you're in sales, marketing, accounting or HR, it's hard to avoid stress and conflicts in the workplace. A wide variety of industries are looking towards Mindfulness meditation as a way to help their workforce cope with the increased levels of stress and anxiety employees are dealing with. Mindfulness training is proving to be a valuable tool for companies looking to provide a positive work environment. Mindfulness leadership training is also providing tools to help individuals develop empathy and a more compassionate approach to leading. Mindfulness is helping leaders develop the mindset that caring and supporting their employees is a more sustainable way of leading than leading with fear.

Mindful Leadership encourages individuals to remain emotionally balanced during stressful situations, lead by example and appreciate their workforce.
Many financial institutions and insurance companies such as Aetna, Statefarm, Nationwide, Citi, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, The World Bank, TD Ameritrade, UBS and many others have experimented with mindfulness training. Regardless of the industry, mindfulness can benefits all who make even a small commitment to practicing it on a regular basis. Mindfulness training helps individuals cooperate with one another by allowing us to understand another person's perspective. This skill can help improve relationships professionally and personally.

Mindfulness isn't just practiced on a beach, in a garden, a yoga studio or some other peaceful location. It is moving into a very unlikely environment and that is the corporate world. Corporations and mindful leadership seem to be at odds with each other. After all, when one thinks of the corporate world, one thinks of deadlines, competition, high pressure and long shifts.

It's exactly because of this that mindfulness meditation and Mindfulness training have made their way into the corporate environment. However, mindfulness has also moved into college campuses, hospitals, the military and even professional sports. All of these environments have their unique challenges and stress factors and mindfulness training can help anyone with a mind with reducing stress, feeling calmer and seeing situations from a positive perspective.

A Harvard business review article explains that mindfulness can actually change your brain. The Anterior Cingulate Cortex (ACC) which is located behind the frontal lobe of the brain, is responsible for self-regulation and prevents one from knee-jerk reaction's. Those with a damaged ACC have a harder time regulating theer emotions and behavior. However, research shows that meditators are better at regulating their emotions and behavior. Having the ability to balance one’s emotions and not losing one’s cool is a key principle of mindful leadership. Losing your cool with your workforce will create an environment of fear and not inspiration.

Christopher Moore and MIT nearest scientist, explains that meditation helps improve focus. These types of research articles are allowing individuals who might be skeptical of mindfulness to adopt it more freely and even bring it into a corporate arena.

Mindfulness trainings can be conducted by a mindfulness expert in an office environment. One doesn't have to sit cross-legged on a yoga mat to engage in mindfulness meditation. One can be sitting in an office chair or at a conference table. One should be comfortable enough to stay alert but not so comfortable that one runs the risk of falling asleep. If one wants to use Meditation to recharge and refocus, then one will need to stay alert and keep the mind focused on the present moment and their breath. Whenever one catches their mind wandering, one should gently bring it back to the present moment. The constant bringing back of the mind strengthens the muscles of the mind. This can be equated to doing push-ups with the mind.

Pandit Dasa, mindful leadership expert, has been has been conducting mindfulness trainings for almost two decades in and around New York City in corporations and college campuses around the country. He recommends starting with just five simple minutes per day of meditation. If you can do five minutes a day for 30 days then you can increase by one or two minutes per day. He believes that if it's done gradually and at a comfortable pace, there's a better chance of the practice remaining consistent.

As a Mindfulness expert, Pandit Dasa organizes mindfulness workshop and mindfulness trainings for corporate professionals and encourages them to remain calm and collected during difficult situations and to treat their employees with respect and to regularly appreciating their contributions. If managers can implement components of mindful leadership in their approach, it will gradually filter down to the rest of the workforce. This will be good for the individual, the teams and the entire organization. It's a win-win for everyone.

Ultimately, we should aspire to create a culture of mindfulness in our organization as that will not only help individuals reduce stress, but it will also create a positive and harmonious work environment.

— Michael Liebreich

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, January 23, 2018 / — Ignite Power is pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Liebreich to its advisory board to further strengthen the company's strategic growth and support scaling up of the company’s operations across Africa to make 100% Clean Access a reality.

Michael Liebreich is a well-known thought leader on renewable energy and has a strong network among stakeholders spanning utilities, financiers and governments. He founded New Energy Finance in 2004 and sold it to Bloomberg LP in 2009, staying on as CEO until 2014, then as Chair of the advisory board until the end of 2017, and now as Senior Contributor. Mr. Liebreich is also a member of the high-level advisory board of the UN’s Sustainable Energy for All initiative and recently joined the advisory boards of The Hawthorn Club, an international network for senior professional women in the energy industry, and Shell New Energies. Michael is a founding advisory board member of Women in Sustainability, Environment and Renewable Energy (WiSER).

Following his appointment, Michael Liebreich said: “I am delighted to join Ignite’s advisory board. Rooftop systems are the key to rapidly providing modern energy systems to over six hundred million people in African who currently have no access to electricity. Ignite’s innovative financing model and market approach is helping to unlock capital at real scale. I am looking forward to working with the dynamic and extremely experienced team at Ignite to turn 100% clean access into reality.”

Yariv Cohen, CEO of Ignite, said: “Ignite is one of the fastest-growing providers of electrical services in the world. Our strategy is not just to provide basic electricity access to those without it – although that is certainly a driving priority – but to become a leading, large-scale player in the future of Africa’s electricity supply. I am sure Michael’s strategic vision and contacts around the world will help us achieve our goals.”

According to the World Bank’s 2017 State of Energy Access report, 609 million people lack access to electricity in Africa. The electrification rate in Sub-Saharan Africa has increased from 27% to just under 40% since the year 2000, but due to population growth absolute numbers of people lacking electricity in Africa are still rising.

About Ignite

Ignite Power is a leading provider of solar electricity in Africa. The company distributes and finances solar-based solutions to clients with the most affordable price plans in Africa. Ignite has signed agreements to provide solar solutions to over 500,000 homes, and is targeting to quadruple this in the coming year.

In January 2018 Ignite was awarded $15m in long-term project financing by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD). Also, in recognition of its impact, Ignite was awarded the “Innovator of the year” and “Best Customer Value”.

Blockchain Betting and Profit Sharing: A Look into to XWIN ICO


BELIZE CITY, BELIZE, January 22, 2018 / — The XWIN ICO is off to a healthy start in the new year. Launched on January 1st, the project has raised over $2.4 at the time of writing. The offering will last until the end of the month, and currently, there’s still a 10% for buy-ins. As it now stands, one XWIN token goes for the price of 0.005 ETH

80% of all tokens will be made available to players and investors through the ICO, while the remaining 20% will be made available to team members a year out from the ICO’s end date.

What is XWIN?

Per its website, XWIN is “the world’s first crypto bookmaker,” a sports and events betting platform built on Ethereum’s blockchain that guarantees revenue sharing for its stakeholders.

Under XWIN’s model, bets and payments are handled through Ethereum powered smart contracts. All XWIN CryptoBet operations take place within these smart contracts, and records of bets, losses, and wins are stored on the blockchain’s public ledger.

When compared to current practices, blockchain bookkeeping offers a number of benefits:

-Increased Transparency: All prices, bets, and transactions are verifiable thanks to the blockchain’s public ledger, effectively eliminating any chance of fraud under XWIN’s system. Further, smart contracts govern every step of the betting process, ensuring players and investors their promised payouts as dictated by these contracts. Once a determined payout is entered into a smart contract, that payout is locked into the contract and cannot be altered after-the-fact. As such, arbitrage or account lock-outs due to due to frequent wins are avoided.

-Security: Smart contracts protect against malicious betting practices and completely nullify the chance of embezzlement. No one party has control over the platform’s smart contracts, and as a result, smart contracts and their mandates cannot be tampered with once they are entered into the Ethereum network.

-Stability and Efficiency: The Ethereum blockchain will keep XWIN’s platform robust and stable. Thanks the blockchain’s decentralized infrastructure, XWIN will not fall prey to systemic inefficiencies and vulnerabilities that plague centralized networks. What’s more, Ethereum’s smart contracts act as arbiters for the entire betting process, streamlining the process and cutting out the need for unnecessary oversight over bets and payments.

How Does XWIN’s Profit Sharing Work

XWIN betting margins range from 6-20%, and all margins are managed autonomously through an XWIN smart contract account. 100% of all margin profits are divided up as follows:

• 25% to the fund of guaranteed payments to the players;
• 35% to public relations, marketing, promotion, and advertising;
• 20% to administration and legal support;
• 20% to income distributed among the investors.

So, players are guaranteed 25% of betting margins, while XWIN token stakeholders and investors will receive 20%.
According to the project’s whitepaper, “The XWIN token holders can sell tokens at a nominal price at any time, and the tokens are redeemed directly by the XWIN platform smart contract.”
What Can You Bet On and Who Can Use the Platform?
XWIN will accomodate betting for the following sports/events: football, hockey, tennis, basketball, motorsports, American football, badminton, baseball, biathlon, boxing, volleyball, handball, darts, E-sports, politics, rugby, mixed martial arts, snooker, chess, show business and more.
All bids and bets will be placed through Ethereum-powered smart contracts, and users can verify their buy-ins, payouts, and bet results on, through XWIN’s API, or through applications that interface with the Ethereum blockchain, such as My Ether Wallet or Etherscan.

XWIN tokens all betters and third parties to access the XWIN platform to place bids and take advantage of its betting solution. For example, if a third party bookmaker’s office, casino, or betting house wanted to use XWIN’s blockchain platform to optimize their betting/bookkeeping process, they would need XWIN tokens to do so.
