- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
Access checking seems to be the easiest account to waive the monthly fee on. It has a $5.95 monthly fee and this is waived with eStatements and by using self service channels. I wasn’t able to find a fee schedule so I’m unsure if there is any early account termination fee charged or not.
Good bonus if you live in the area as it looks to be a soft pull and direct deposit isn’t a requirement. Also isn’t difficult to keep the account fee free. I will be adding this to our best checking promotions page, click here to view that.
