You can't correct it after you have filed your return. If the bank doesn't recognize the account when the IRS sends them the direct deposit, they will decline the deposit and the IRS will issue a check and mail it to you at the address on your tax return.
You will need to make the payment using another method before the due date of 07/15. That link is for payments made online by credit card or your bank account.
Other Ways You Can Pay:
- Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (best option for businesses or large payments; enrollment required)
- Electronic Funds Withdrawal (during e-filing)
- Same-day wire (bank fees may apply)
- Check or money order
- Cash (at a retail partner)

I would cancel the payment as well as making a payment a different way ... the IRS can actually bill you for the failed debit which you want to avoid ... call as instructed :
- Once your return is accepted, information pertaining to your payment, such as account information, payment date, or amount, cannot be changed. If changes are needed, the only option is to cancel the payment and choose another payment method.
- Call IRS e-file Payment Services 24/7 at 1-888-353-4537 to inquire about or cancel your payment, but please wait 7 to 10 days after your return was accepted before calling.
- Cancellation requests must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. ET two business days prior to the scheduled payment date.
- If a payment is returned by your financial institution (e.g., due to insufficient funds, incorrect account information, closed account, etc.) the IRS will mail a Letter 4870 to the address we have on file for you, explaining why the payment could not be processed, and providing alternate payment options.
- In the event your financial institution is unable to process your payment request, you will be responsible for making other payment arrangements, and for any penalties and interest incurred.
