According to the Santa Barbara TPG CARES Act Update website:

 

An IRS-issued check will be mailed to taxpayers that received a check printed from their tax professional's office or a debit card issued through Santa Barbara TPG.

 

The IRS and Treasury Department are developing a website for taxpayers who are expecting a check, where they can provide their bank account information in order to receive their Economic Impact Payment by direct deposit. According to this message on the IRS website the IRS will notify taxpayers when more details are available. We will update this page when more information is available.

Hello and thank you for your reply. Please allow me to clarify. I did not receive a paper check and I did not receive a debit card for my 2019 refund. I received a direct deposit into my personal checking account. My concern is that the deposit was not from the IRS, but rather from turbotax, because I chose to pay the TT fees from my refund. So, my refund was sent to TT, then they Deducted their filing fees, and then sent me the remaining amount through direct deposit. So, although i had direct deposit, it wasn't from the IRS. Since TT had my direct deposit on file and it was on my tax forms, is that enough, or do i need to contact the IRS directly? Thank you again.

Unfortunately, we don't know for sure.  We are still waiting for direct guidance from the IRS regarding updating or providing direct deposit information for the stimulus payments and how they will be distributed to these types of accounts. We will have more information once the government finalizes the details.
