NOW THEREFORE, for and in consideration of the covenants and agreements contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, Inteserra and Client, intending to be legally bound, hereby agree as follows:

  1. SCOPE OF AGREEMENT: Inteserra agrees to provide to Client the services, preparation and filing of returns in the jurisdictions based on the Selected Plan , and additional jurisdictional filings for which the Client becomes subject to during the term of this Agreement (the "Services").
  2. TERM OF AGREEMENT: The initial term of this Agreement shall begin on the Effective Date and shall continue for 12 months.. This Agreement will automatically renew for successive one-year periods at the expiration of the initial or current term unless cancelled in accordance with the terms set forth herein. Either Party may terminate this Agreement upon expiration of the initial or current term by providing written notice of such termination to the other Party not less than ninety (90) days prior to the end of the initial or current term of this Agreement.
  3. ESCROW ACCOUNT:  Client authorizes Inteserra to set up an Escrow Account (“Account” or “Escrow Account”) with First Citizens Bank or another financial institution specified by Inteserra and to make remittances/payments on Client’s behalf from this Account in accordance with the terms herein. 

    a) Funding of Escrow Account - Inteserra will hold certain funds provided by Client (the “Funds”) in the Account to be used for the purposes set forth in subsection (b) below. Inteserra will provide Client with an estimate of the Funds needed for the upcoming liabilities, which may include a contingency amount of up to 10% to cover unanticipated charges. Client agrees to make the Funds available to Inteserra within 48 hours of receiving Inteserra’s Fund estimate. If Client fails to make the estimated Funds available to Inteserra within that time, Client acknowledges and agrees that it will pay Inteserra an additional fee equal to 10% of the estimated Funds not as a penalty, but as a reasonable estimate of the costs incurred by Inteserra as a result. Further, if sufficient Funds are not available in Client's Account, Inteserra shall use its reasonable best efforts to notify Client prior to the due date of any payment to an Agency so that Funds can be replenished, or alternative payment arrangements made. However, Inteserra shall not be liable for any interest, late payment, or other penalty assessed against Client by an Agency as a result of a late payment caused by insufficient Funds or Funds that were not immediately available.  No Client liability will be paid by Inteserra unless Client has sufficient funds in their Account.

    b) Use of Funds - Client authorizes Inteserra to disburse monies from the Account for the purposes of: (1) remitting any taxes, fees, assessments, or other disbursements otherwise payable to an Agency by Client in respect to returns or reports prepared by Inteserra under this Agreement; (2) payment of any fees billed by Inteserra to Client for services rendered under this Agreement; and (3) payment of any Bank Fees associated with maintenance of the Escrow Account. The term "Agency" as used in this section shall refer to any entity which is the recipient of a tax, reporting fee, assessment, or other disbursement due and owing as a result of reports and returns prepared by Inteserra for Client pursuant to this Agreement. “Bank Fees” include but are not limited to normal and customary fees and charges incurred in connection with an escrow account, including bank service charges, check printing charges, and charges as a result of a dishonored check or insufficient funds provided by Client. In addition, “Bank Fees” include additional fees charged by the institution designed to further provide protection for the Account, such as overdraft and fraud protection, ACH verification, etc. Either Client or Inteserra may, in their sole discretion, enroll the Account in such protection programs.

    c) Inteserra shall prepare a statement of transactions within Client's Account on a monthly basis, and provide a copy of said statement by the tenth business day of the following month. 

    d) In addition to the Bank Fees associated with the Escrow Account, Inteserra may charge Client a monthly fee as compensation to Inteserra for managing and maintaining the Escrow Account (the “Escrow Maintenance Fee”) which Client agrees to pay. Payment is due on the date identified in the invoice (the “Due Date”). Failure to pay the Escrow Maintenance Fee by the Due Date may result in suspension of escrow services. The Escrow Maintenance Fee does not include Bank Fees.

    e) Ministerial Function - In the event of a dispute with regard to whom the Funds, or any portion thereof, should be paid, Inteserra shall have the right to interplead such amount.  The interpleading of such amounts shall release Inteserra from any further or continuing liability with respect to the disposition of the Funds or any payment of any monies due to an Agency.  Except as herein specifically provided, Inteserra's duties under this Agreement shall be purely ministerial in nature, and Inteserra shall incur no liability whatsoever except for willful misconduct or gross negligence so long as Inteserra acts in good faith.
