- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Early Account Termination Fee
I wasn’t able to find the fee schedule, so I’m unsure if there are any early account termination fees or not
Looks like an extremely easy bonus to meet the requirements for as you only need to use the promo code. Given that it’s a soft pull we will be adding this to the best checking bonus page.
