What is an Affiliate Program?
Affiliate programs are a way for web site owners like you to be compensated for driving traffic and sales to online merchant sites. You simply place a link on your web site (or in your e-mail) that, when clicked, sends visitors to a merchant's site to purchase a product. It's a win-win partnership, because you increase revenue while merchants enjoy increased traffic.

How can I promote CompleteTax?
Through Commission Junction, CompleteTax will provide banners, graphic and text links that you can place on your site. These links will be continuously updated with tax season reminders, new updates and/or promotions. We have found that the text links are the most effective marketing tool for generating CompleteTax sales.

Please see full program terms on the Commission Junction website.
Can I use the CompleteTax logo on my site?

Can I use CompleteTax in my URL or in the name of my site?
No. The use of CompleteTax.com or any variation thereof in your URL or in the name of your site will be cause for your immediate dismissal from the affiliate program. In such a case when you breach the affiliate agreement, you thereby forfeit any earned commissions. Please see full program terms on the Commission Junction website.
What kind of advertising is prohibited?
You cannot send unsolicited e-mail (i.e. spam) in any way. There will be no leniency in cases of unsolicited e-mail, and affiliates in violation of this policy will forfeit their commissions and be removed from the program.
