Where do my tax withholdings sit?
Your tax withholdings are set aside in a tax withholding account at Evolve Bank (Member FDIC) until they are submitted to the IRS when they are due each quarter.
Can I get my tax withholdings back?
Yes, of course. All tax withholdings that have not been submitted to the IRS can be returned to your checking account at any time.
Does this require me to connect my bank?
No, you can use this service without connecting your bank. However, the tools become easy and automatic once you sync your transactions.
Do I need this service if I have a regular (W-2) job?
Our tool helps anyone who earns 1099 income. This can be from a side gig while you still have a regular (W-2) job, or from full-time self-employment work.
