I assume you mean the refund is more than $10,000. If so, the answer is probably Yes, the IRS will most likely convert the refund to a paper check. The IRS doesn't officially publish the threshold, but I've seen refunds less that $10,000 converted to check. The check typically takes only about another week to ten days. You can monitor what's happening by going to Where's My Refund at irs.gov. That system won't tell you whether the direct-deposit will be converted to a check, but it will tell you if that happens and when to expect the check.

This happened to me 2017. The huge problem is Turbo Tax doesn't warn of this when listing options for refund method otherwise I would have split into two accounts. IRS converted to paper check, I was in process of moving, completed forwarding order with postal service (no worries because I selected direct deposit) now check lost, had to wait 30 days to file claim now another 6 weeks for replacement check. THANKS TURBO TAX FOR INCOMPLETE INFORMATION. Have been a satisfied customer for years and convinced many others to use your program. This year has caused huge financial problem for me.

I had the same problem this year with the direct deposit option offered by Turbo Tax for 2017. I filed my Federal and State return with Turbo Tax. I paid the $21.34 for the direct deposit option, but I never received a direct deposit. I received a paper check from the U.S. Treasury. I called Turbo Tax and they told me I had to check with the IRS for the reason I didn't receive a direct deposit. Isn't that what I paid Turbo Tax for? I didn't pay The U.S. Government for this service, I paid Turbo Tax. I checked the IRS website and the only explanation was "Unable to complete your request for direct deposit". No other information is available. So, Turbo Tax offers this service, they will take my money, but they will not help to find out why the service wasn't fulfilled. If Turbo Tax offers a service to its customers, they should be responsible for any issues with that service. That's what I paid for!  So now I'm out $21.34 for a service I paid for but didn't receive. Turbo Tax will not refund the money for failure to provide the service. So now Turbo Tax has lost a 15 year repeat customer. Very short sighted Turbo Tax.

Yes it is a fact that the IRS will convert to a check if the amount is over $10,000 !! For my 2017 year my refund was $16,910. I put in direct deposit and I received a paper check instead. So there ya go plain and simple answer !!!!! Thank you

From my understanding if you did your "pay your turbo tax out of your refund" the check gets mailed to SBTG and then they processes it for the turbo tax charge.  In which if you are still over 10K they will then send you another check because they will not do a direct deposit over 10k either.  Mine was sent the 26th and SGTB has yet to receive the refund for processing.

Please allow an additional 4 weeks for your check to arrive in the mail.  You can find out more information on the IRS FAQ page.

Who was your bank at the time? I wonder if that has something to do with why they may or may not convert.
