I am having a big issue with my tax payments. Last week, I paid my federal taxes by credit card (points were > than fees) and paid my state taxes by direct debit. Today, however, when I look at my bank account I see pending debits for payments to BOTH the federal government and the state government dated today.
My theory as to what happened: back in February when I filed my return through TurboTax, I must have signed up for automatic direct deposit on 4/16 (today) and then forgot that I did that. Looking back through my emails from then, however, I don't see any receipts or records that I set up such a payment.
I have a few questions:
1. How do I confirm that I did in fact make two payments? Would TurboTax or the governments have sent me a receipt?
2. I right now think that I have made one payment to the state gov via direct deposit and two payments to the federal gov (direct deposit and cc). Should I expect a second direct deposit to the govt from my payment last week?
3. How do I get my money back if I did double pay?
