FIRST there is no information on how this will be handled ... especially if you had the TT fees withheld from the federal return ... watch these sites for info in the coming days : 

 

Here is a Turbotax page where info will be posted as it becomes available …  COVID-19 TAX UPDATES

 

The IRS has a dedicated COVID-19 page that you can find by CLICKING HERE

 

Here is the SBTPG site … https://www.sbtpg.com/coronavirus-stimulus-payment-info/

 

These pages will continue to be updated with additional guidance as it is released.

And why does turbo tax not have the information? You pushed your turbocard product very aggressively to people. Now when you need to answer a simple question of - is our stimulus coming on our cards or can we change info through your tax software(which other software corps are doing) you are avoiding the ?
I have been a customer for almost 20 years- but I definitely will no longer be one- if someone cannot answer one freaking ? Without avoidance. Tired of the bs replies I see on this thread.

Ok ... TT doesn't get the refund or send it to your bank account or card  so you are asking the wrong company ... they only forward the information to the IRS who then sends the refund to the third party processing bank NOT TT.  The accounts at these banks are for ONE use only ... the receiving and distributing of the tax refunds and once the deed is done they are CLOSED.  The ability to re open millions of  these accounts  is yet to be known.  The ability to  re open the account so the stimulus check can be received and forwarded to the TT card or your bank account is currently UNKNOWN.   If they cannot reactivate the account then the IRS will have to mail the check to the address on your most current tax return.  

 

It is unfair for you to ask/demand/complain about something that NO ONE including the IRS and third party banks do not know themselves yet.  This stimulus check will not be issued for a couple of weeks yet so patience will be needed as the players involved with administering this new mandate have the time to "get the system in place".   Links to the IRS and the processing bank has been posted and as soon as they know what the system is going to be then THEY will post it ... TT has nothing to do with this process. 

 

And lastly ... you do know we are in the middle of a pandemic so many of the bank employees are not working right now so they will need some time to work out the logistics. Please be patient and understanding.

We cannot give you any answers yet because there  are NO answers to be had yet you nit ... no matter what your situation you need to take a chill pill and let the people who need to deal with this have a bit of time to work it out ... 

 

And before you complain I do NOT work for TT or any bank ... I am only passing along the most current information available. 

 

The details of the Stimulus payments have not been worked out yet. Once things are finalized we will be able to provide more guidance. In the meantime, you can visit the following links for the most recent updates:

You are wrong- the tt card has the ability to set up direct deposit for your paycheck and you can reload it at atms. It is not a one time use card- if it was I would be contacting the irs. The card is set up by turbo tax to work like a bank account. 
As you stated you do not work there- so it would probably be smart not to answer ?’s when you do not know sh...

My comment was regarding the multiple actual turbo tax people that are avoiding the ? When asked directly. Other tax software companies have already set up ways for people to get their money dd. 
no need to reply if you are a nobody- I was asking turbo tax.

Basically, the pros don't know. I checked the papers that were filed. It does have the turbo card info on there (routing number and acct) so I'll just cross my fingers and hope it works out for the best. Turbo Tax should have responded to this in the blog posts they have put out. Next year, I'll make other arrangements. 

 

Ps. Which companies have it figured out already?

You would find any new information by checking back to read the information at the link posted.  It's not simply our decision.  You cannot e-file a second return once you have one accepted.  It would be rejected by the IRS.  You'd have to file an amended return on paper and by mail.  It takes several weeks (generally around 6) typically for the IRS to process mailed amended returns, which wouldn't help you at all.  We all have to wait and see if the IRS is going to address this issue and how.

I am in the same exact boat! My turbo card is from 2018. I have moved. And the card is lost! Just need help on what I need to do, trying to be proactive!
