3. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE

Subject to full compliance with the Terms of Service, Express Form Filings shall provide you the Services. “Services” may include, but not be limited to, document preparation and filing services on your behalf. The Services that Express Form Filings provides are always evolving and the form and nature of the Services that Express Form Filings provides may change from time to time without prior notice to you. Express Form Filings may change, suspend or discontinue the Services for any reason, at any time, including the availability of any feature. Express Form Filings may also impose limits on the Services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability. You understand and agree that the Services are provided “AS-IS” and that Express Form Filings assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings. You are responsible for obtaining access to the Services, and that access may involve third-party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Services.

The Services may include advertisements, which may be targeted to information on the Services, queries made through the Services, or other information. The types and extent of advertising by Express Form Filings on the Services are subject to change. In consideration for Express Form Filings granting you access to and use of the Services, you agree that Express Form Filings and its third party providers and partners may place such advertising on the Services or in connection with the display of information from the Services.

Express Form Filings is a document preparation and filing service for specific Federal, State, County, and/or City documents. Express Form Filings uses the information you provide to prepare and/or file the documents that you request on your behalf as your authorized agent or third party designee.

Express Form Filings does not sell documents. Empty documents are free, and many documents can be filed free of charge if you do so yourself. We sell a customized web based document preparation and/or filing service. All of our services include courteous and knowledgeable support, which is available via email and phone.

We are a private entity and we are not affiliated with any government agency. We specialize in the preparation and/or filing of certain government and/or tax related documents, but we are not the government. We are not endorsed by, affiliated with, or approved by the Internal Revenue Service, US Department of the Treasury, Social Security Administration, or any other government agency. We work only on the behalf of you to improve your filing experience by preparing and/or filing the documents that you request on your behalf. Alternatively, you can obtain, prepare, and file your own documents instead of using our services; you can visit one of many different government websites such as irs.gov and ssa.gov.

We are not lawyers and we do not provide tax advice or any other legal and/ or professional advice of any kind. We do provide general information to our clients and to the public about our services and the various documents that we offer to prepare and/or file. It is your responsibility to determine the specific documents applicable to your situation. For financial, legal or other advice, you should contact the appropriate respective and licensed professionals. If you opt not to do so, you will be acting as your own financial advisor, attorney or other such professional and you agree not to rely upon or depend on any information contained in this Site or otherwise provided by Express Form Filings instead of or in place of any such advice.

We will only prepare and/or file the documents that you request. We do not prepare any documents that you do not specifically request or that are not offered with our services. We do not review the information you provide for accuracy. We will only use the information that you provide to fulfill your order through our service. Once your order is fulfilled we will not provide any ongoing service and our third party designee status ends immediately. You understand that any additional filing that may be applicable to your situation such as for updates, licensing, renewals or taxation is your responsibility. It is your responsibility to ensure the information you provide to Express Form Filings is accurate and you represent to Express Form Filings that your information is accurate upon submission.
