Follow the instructions below to see what you input into the tax return. If your tax return was rejected for e-filing...use the steps below to edit the information if it was entered incorrectly...

As long as you haven't filed yet (or you e-filed but got rejected), you can simply step through the File section again to choose a different method.

  • Once you sign into your return, Click the File section, click Revisit in the Step 2 section.
  • On the How would you like to get your federal refund? screen, In my Bank should be selected.  Click Continue.
  • You will be able to update your account number on the next screen, Let's get your bank account info. 

Once your return has been accepted (or mailed), it's too late to change your bank account for direct deposit.

Workaround

If you want to change or edit the banking information that is shown, make sure that the box stating "I want my refund deposited into this account" is unchecked. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and select Continue. You will be taken to a new screen titled, "Let's get your bank account info". This will allow you to enter the new or updated banking information that is to be used for your 2016 direct deposit.


Once your return has been accepted (or mailed), it's too late to change your bank account for direct deposit.

If the info you provided is for a closed or invalid account, the government will mail you a refund check.

If the info you entered is someone else's account, don't worry – some banks won't deposit tax refunds into accounts where names don't match up.  The best way for you to track your federal refund is to call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040.

If your recently-filed return is in pending status, wait until it's either accepted or rejected.

  • If rejected, you can update your account and any issues that caused the rejection.   Open your return in TurboTax and go through the File section again to update your bank account before re-submitting your return.
  • If accepted, you'll get your refund check in the mail.
