I pay for my tax e-file using my return. So, the refund direct deposit doesn't come from the IRS but a TurboTax third party. How will this effect the stimulus payment?

We are still waiting for IRS guidance regarding updating or providing direct deposit information for the stimulus payments and how they will be distributed to these type of accounts.

 

We will have more information once the government finalizes the details.

same constant answers that are literally ZERO help. This is a very basic question.

The answer depends on when or if 2019 has been filed, if you still have access to the card from the TurboTax third party, and whether you qualify to get a stimulus check. Keep in mind TurboTax does not direct the third party. 

 

If you will receive your refund on a prepaid debit card in tax year 2018 or 2019, here is what you need to know: 

  • I have access to my debit card: If you have access to your debit card (most people), there is nothing more you need to do.  If the IRS deposits a stimulus payment onto your prepaid debit card, you will be able to immediately use the stimulus funds upon deposit. 
  • I don't have access to my debit card: If you received a notification that you will be receiving your stimulus payment from the IRS on your prepaid debit card and no longer have access to it, we will have information coming shortly.  We encourage you to visit this site, where we are continually updating with the latest information and guidance. We know everyone is anxious to get their stimulus money and we are committed to helping our customers get access to their stimulus payment as fast as possible.
