Can I change to direct deposit from paper check form?

Providing you haven't filed yet (or you e-filed but got rejected), you can simply revisit the File section again to choose a different method.

However, if you have successfully e-filed and your return was transmitted to the IRS you are unable to make changes to your refund method unless you are for some reason rejected and need to refile.

You can only change your refund method if you have not filed yet. If you have already filed, you will have to wait 4-6 weeks to receive a paper check from the IRS. Unfortunately, there is no way to make the IRS expedite it. You can look up your refund status here: Where's My Refund? 

 

Please refer to the article below for more information.

When will I get my IRS tax refund? 

 

Follow the instructions below to change your refund method. 

  1. Open your return in TurboTax. 

  2. Go to the File section in the left menu. 

  3. Next to Step 2: Your refund info select Revisit

  4. Choose your desired refund method and select Continue. 

Unfortunately, once your e-filed return has been accepted or you already mailed it, it's too late to change your refund.

I wanted to know if we get a other stimulus check can it be a paper check

We don't have specific information on the income qualifications or procedures for the third stimulus payment because the measure hasn't been passed yet.  It is doubtful that we will be given the option to 'opt' for a specific form of payment.

 

However, If you had issues receiving your earlier stimulus, then the best way to ensure that you are one of the first to receive any future stimulus payments is to file your 2020 tax return as early as possible and use direct deposit so that the IRS will have your updated information.

 

You can find the most up to date information from the IRS here, and updates from TurboTax here as they develop.

Once a return has been efiled and accepted for processing you cannot change the method you will receive the refund.

@Shaquill29 Unfortunately it is too late to do so after you have filed and the return is accepted.

If you have already filed the 2020 tax return then how you receive the tax refund cannot be changed.
