Netspend, a TSYS division and card provider, has signed an agreement to continue providing prepaid cards to Liberty Tax customers until 2021.

The contract extension follows the original agreement signed by the firms in 2010. Under the latest deal, Liberty Tax and SiempreTax+ members can choose to receive their tax refund onto the Netspend Liberty Tax Prepaid MasterCard/Visa cards.

Both the cards are issued by Republic Bank & Trust Company and can be availed at all places where the respective debit cards are accepted.

Netspend president Kelley Knutson said: “Our partnership with Liberty Tax helps us reach customers at a critical point in their financial lives during tax season.”

Liberty Tax CEO Ed Brunot said: “Our relationship with Netspend helps us provide services, such as direct deposit of tax refunds, that our customers want and need, and that they’ve come to expect.”
