Baird Tax Information Download and Data Import Terms and Conditions

Robert W. Baird & Co. Incorporated ("Baird") is providing to its clients ("you") the ability to download certain tax information related to your Baird accounts ("Tax Information"). By accessing your Tax Information in this manner, you agree to the terms and conditions set forth herein (the "Agreement"). These terms and conditions are subject to change by Baird at any time in Baird's discretion and such changes will be effective upon posting of updated terms and conditions by Baird.

1. Tax Information. Baird, or a third-party service provider selected by Baird, will provide you the ability to electronically access your Tax Information via your computer or other electronic device and to download the Tax Information in a .CSV file, directly import such Tax Information into TurboTax® and/or TurboTax® Online, or otherwise provide such Tax Information in an electronic format (the “Service”)1. Provision of the Tax Information is for information purposes only. Baird does not warrant the completeness, timeliness, or accuracy of Tax Information provided pursuant to the Service. Baird may suspend, cancel, or change its provision of the Service at any time without notice to you.

2. Your Official Baird Statement. You should carefully review all Tax Information you download using the Service against the printed Baird tax statement (such statement will be provided either as a printed hard copy or an electronic .PDF document) that Baird provides to you (the "Official Baird Tax Statement"). Please note that not all information from the Official Baird Tax Statement may be supported by the Service. Some information from the Official Baird Tax Statement may not be present in the downloadable Tax Information. You, or your tax advisor, may need to manually enter such missing information into the tax accounting software system you, or your tax advisor, are using. Any Tax Information provided through the Service shall not be deemed to supersede or replace your Official Baird Tax Statement, or any corrected Official Baird Tax Statement. The contents of the Official Baird Tax Statement, or any corrected Official Baird Tax Statement, reflect the information Baird provides to the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”). Per IRS regulations, if you are required to file a return, a penalty or sanction may be imposed on you if any income reflected on the Official Baird Tax Statement is taxable and the IRS determines that it has not been properly included in your filed tax returns. You are solely responsible for the accuracy of your tax returns. Baird is not liable for your reliance upon or use of the Service or the Tax Information provided through such Service.

3. No Tax Advice. Baird does not provide tax advice. It is important that you consult a professional tax advisor, the IRS, or the state(s) to which you report regarding your individual tax situation. If you have specific questions regarding the preparation of your tax return, you should contact your tax advisor.
