We at SPAN Enterprises, LLC, owners and operators of ExpressTaxZone (hereinafter referred to as ExpressTaxZone, which represents ExpressTruckTax, ExpressExtension, ExpressIFTA, ExpressTaxExempt, ExpressIRSForms, ExpressACAForms, ACAwise, TaxBandits and Express e-File), believe it is of the utmost importance to respect and protect the privacy of all our customers. We want you to feel comfortable and confident when using our products and services, and weâ€™ve taken every step possible to ensure our software and websites are safe and secure.
We do not sell or rent your personal information to anyone for promotional or marketing purposes, however we may collect personal information about you from the following categories and sources in order to complete your IRS return(s):
As part of the tax filing process, the IRS and State Tax agencies require ExpressTaxZone to request the email address of the person electronically filing a tax return. If an email address is collected, it is provided by ExpressTaxZone to only the appropriate IRS/State Tax agencies. As a method for detecting fraud in connection with e-filing, the IRS also requires ExpressTaxZone to provide the Internet Protocol information (IP address) of the computer from which the return originated.
SPAN Enterprises ensures all ExpressTaxZone sites and software are equipped with the most up-to-date security measures to protect the privacy of our customers. All ExpressTaxZone products are IRS-authorized hosts for e-filing the tax forms and information returns they support. ExpressTaxZone has also implemented commercially appropriate means to protect the integrity of each site and software to limit access to customersâ€™ personal information. These means - which include Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, restricted access to and monitoring of data storage, and intrusion detection and virus protection software - protect customer information retained in secure accounts on each website as well as during transmission of information to the IRS and State Tax agencies.
While SPAN Enterprises works diligently to ensure the utmost security and privacy for our ExpressTaxZone customers, we cannot provide an absolute guarantee against, nor be held liable for, any breaches of data security due to unauthorized access by third parties or system failures. In the event of a security breach, or if ExpressTaxZone has reason to believe customer privacy has been compromised, ExpressTaxZone will take steps to alert owners of the compromised account(s) as soon as possible.
