Can I change the debit card direct deposit of my tax refund?

It depends. If you've already filed and your return has been accepted (or mailed), it's too late to change your bank account for direct deposit. If you have not filed, please click the link below for instructions on how to update your direct deposit information.

Can I change the debit card direct deposit of my tax refund?

It depends.

 

If you have already filed your tax return, you cannot make any changes within TurboTax as your return has already been submitted to the taxing agencies.

 

 

If you have not filed your tax return, then yes, you can make the changes within TurboTax.

 

When you proceed through the File section of the program, you will be prompted for how you want to pay your taxes.  You will be able to enter your updated information in this section.

Did you already e-file?  If you did NOT e-file you can go to the FILE section and change how you want to receive your refund.  If you want direct deposit you need the routing number and your own account number.

 

You cannot  change banking information while your return is in pending, nor can you change it after the return is accepted.  The IRS does not allow it.

 

If you e-filed:

Banking information for direct deposit is wrong

If you entered incorrect banking information for your refund, you can change it if your return is rejected.  If it is accepted, however, it is too late to change it.  The bank will reject the refund and send it back to the IRS.  Then the IRS will issue a paper check and mail it to the address you put on your tax return.  Expect a delay of at least a couple of weeks to receive your refund.

Here is what the IRS says about entering incorrect banking information
