Direct deposit

Regarding the $654 deposit you received, it sounds like your refund was offset. The IRS can offset refunds for many different things:

  • Past-due child support;
  • Federal agency non-tax debts;
  • State income tax obligations; or
  • Certain unemployment compensation debts owed to a state.

I recommend contacting the Department of Treasury's Bureau of Fiscal Service (BFS) Offset Line to get details on your offset. You can contact the BFS call center at 800-304-3107 when the IRS reopens.


Regarding the stimulus, it sounds like your stimulus has not been funded yet. The IRS has not given TurboTax any official guidance as to when stimulus payments for every taxpayer will be released. As long as you provided your direct deposit information or mailing address information, you will receive the stimulus when it is released to you (as long as you otherwise qualify for it).

You will need to contact the IRS and Franchise Tax Board directly.


If they made any adjustments to your refunds, they will send you a notice explaining why they made any changes and will give you an opportunity to appeal if you do not agree.


Where's my refund


Tracking CA refund


The stimulus payment is being issued independently of your tax return refunds.  You can use the following link from the IRS to determine what the status is for your stimulus check.  

Check status of economic payment


Please be aware, if the IRS issued your stimulus payment before your 2019 tax return was filed, your stimulus payment will be based off of your 2018 tax return.
