  1. I just clicked through the other day and the points posted the next day after clicking through the order screen showing a $0 filing charge. Points posted 2 days before I ended up actually e-filing the return.

  2. My 1040 2018 taxes (personal, not business) were prepared by an accountant (not TurboTax). If I pay my balance due with my Rapid Rewards Priority Visa card, will I receive Rapid Rewards Points for the amount paid?
