I filed my taxes, yet I didn't submit bank account information this year, so how am I going to get my check electronically if you don't let me enter my information?

It would depend on what method you selected to pay/receive your refund while filing. You can use this link for instructions on how to view the payment method you chose to receive your refund:https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/tax-payments/help/how-do-i-review-the-method-i-chose-to-pay-my-fed...

you'd get a check...once your tax return is sent to the IRS by TT, TT is out of the equation.  they have nothing to do with updating the direct deposit information, 

 

The IRS is supposed to set up a website for those to enter their direct deposit information, but the timing remaining TBD

"They have nothing to do with updating the direct deposit information."

 

That's false. They have a form in which you can submit direct deposit information, but only if you aren't required to file. It wouldn't be that complicated to allow all people who need to provide direct deposit information to provide it. I'm just screwed because TurboTax wants to be lazy and not provide that outlet.

 

And I would prefer not to wait months for the IRS to do anything, because I doubt they would be in any kind of rush.

I didn't select any method to pay what I owed because I could go onto the IRS's site directly and set that up. Unfortunately, the IRS isn't in a rush to process any of the information I submitted, so they don't have my direct deposit information yet.

 

And I'd prefer not to wait months to get a check from an agency that is falling apart more and more every day.

 

P.S. I'm not going to "say thanks" if you didn't even answer my question.

when i stated 'they don't have anything to do with it', I was referring to Turbo Tax. 

 

The IRS is responsible for obtaining the direct deposits information in this case and THEY are the ones that have stated they are providing a website for those updates and see the section about "irs doesn't have my DD information" (I appreciate the TT website is only for those that have not filed at all).

 

how do you know TT is being lazy?  maybe the IRS hasn't approved them to do it? The IRS owns this - not TT.

to set expectations, here is the plan for the checks that Treasury Secretary Mnuchin announced last week.  They will be issued in order of your income.

 

The week of April 24th - expectation is that checks will be mailed for those gross income on their tax return was under $10,000 

 

the week of May 1, they will move to those making under $20,000

 

etc. 

 

The IRS does not have my direct deposit information. What can I do?

In the coming weeks, Treasury plans to develop a web-based portal for individuals to provide their banking information to the IRS online, so that individuals can receive payments immediately as opposed to checks in the mail.
